Oak Ridge attorney Mike Ritter said his client wasn’t speeding as he traveled down Hwy. 61 in Roane County on Feb. 6.
Knoxville attorney David C. Hollow made the allegation against Merley Tilson in an answer to a lawsuit.
“Quite frankly, I’m upset about the allegation,” Ritter said.
Hollow represents ex-state trooper Samuel Dean Norman, who is being sued in Roane County Circuit by Sandra J. Solomon.
She claims Norman caused the Feb. 6 crash that killed her husband, Elmer Solomon.
