Wife of Slain Taxi Driver Awarded $1.2M Settlement
The wife of a slain taxi driver has been awarded a settlement of $1.2 million from the then-owner of an apartment complex where her husband was fatally shot. Five and a half years after the death of her husband, and a complex legal battle against Bethany Group, LLC, a settlement was reached on April 4th, 2013. The agreement occurred approximately one year after Bethany was denied an appeal.
Her husband, Dane Grobman, 52, was shot and killed in the early morning of November 9, 2007, at the Alden Ridge Apartments on Brockett Rd. in Clarkston, Georgia. The apartment complex had a long history of criminal activity including drug dealing and robberies, and the person who called the cab was never found. Phone records yielded an untraceable disposable cellphone.
The apartment complex previously had employed round-the-clock security, but not since prior to February 2007, according to a brief. No private security guards were on the premises that night.
