A lawsuit stemming from the December 2009 deaths of 17-year-old Kaitlyn Griffin and her unborn child Nicholas Ayden Steele is set to go before a jury next week. Griffin and Steele were killed when a large tree fell at Colonial Village in Somerset. Griffin’s cousin, also named in the lawsuit as a plaintiff, was injured in the incident. The plaintiffs are seeking punitive and compensatory damages from the Somerset Housing Authority, which owns and maintains the apartments.
