Family of British teenager Harry Dunn win right to claim damages in US against Anne Sacoolas, who was driving on the wrong side of a UK country road when she was involved in a collision with motorcyclist Dunn, who died, in August 2019.

Earlier this month a US court heard that Sacoolas, who fled the UK with her family after Dunn was killed, was working for an intelligence agency at the time of Dunn’s death.

A civil claim for damages brought by Harry Dunn’s family against the teenager’s alleged killer will go ahead in the United States, a judge has ruled.

Anne Sacoolas had applied for the proceedings to be dismissed on the grounds that the UK would be a “more convenient” forum.

The Clintons attended the memorial service for acting legend Cicely Tyson in New York City earlier today.

Former US president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were among the attendees of a private memorial service for Tyson at Harlem’s famed Abyssinian Baptist Church.

Abyssinian Baptist’s pastor, Rev. Calvin O. Butts, said afterwards that Tyson was an example of “a life well lived and an example of how we all might live,” adding, “She was as much an ambassador for peace and love as anybody I can think of.”

Also in attendance for the nearly three-hour service were gospel singer Bebe Winans and Valerie Simpson of the duo Ashford & Simpson.

Hundreds of mourners lined up in Harlem to pay respects to award-winning actress Cicely Tyson, who died last month at 96.
