Levaya of Mr. Moshe Menora A”H
The son of a Skokie businessman and prominent member of the north suburb’s Jewish community is suing his father’s business and estate over a 2010 plane crash that killed the father and the plaintiff’s two children.
Shalom Menora, Moshe’s son and the father of two of the teen girls, filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court Wednesday blaming his father for failing to keep proper control of the aircraft and for continuing with the flight even after several take-off attempts were aborted.
Witnesses told investigators one engine did not sound like it was developing full power during the third and final takeoff attempt, and that the aircraft rotated just before the end of the runway, according to National Transportation Safety Board report. The report could not pinpoint why the pilot lost control during takeoff.
The one-count suit was filed against Moshe Menora’s business Tri-United Management, which owned the plane, as well as two executors of his estate. It seeks at least $50,000 in damages.
