Naya Rivera's Son Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Back in July actress Naya Rivera drowned after renting a pontoon boat with her five year old son Josey on Lake Piru in Ventura, CA [click here if you missed that]. 

Naya's ex-husband Ryan Dorsey has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the boating company on their son's behalf...

Naya Rivera’s son, Josey, filed a wrongful death lawsuit four months after the Glee alum accidentally drowned in a lake, Us Weekly confirms.
Josey’s father, Ryan Dorsey, to whom Rivera was married from 2014 to 2018, and the late actress’ estate submitted the paperwork on the 5-year-old’s behalf on Tuesday, November 17. Josey is suing Ventura County, California, where his mother died in July, as well as United Water Conservation District and the county’s Parks and Recreation Management for wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
The complaint obtained by Us alleges that Rivera’s death was preventable and that the boat she and Josey had rented from Lake Piru did not comply with U.S. Coast Guard safety standards.
