Jury finds Domino's not liable for 2007 death of delivery driver

A jury ruled that Domino's pizza is not liable for the killing of one of their delivery drivers.

Corey Lind, of Chicopee, was murdered on the job in 2007.

Lind's parents filed a civil lawsuit claiming the Domino's franchise does not do enough to keep their drivers safe.

"It's about getting a law passed, it's about helping all the other drivers out there," said Michael Lind, Corey Lind's father.

Michael Lind looks back on the day his son was killed and wishes that more could have been in place to keep him safe.

"It was hours before anybody even figured out there was a problem," he said.

Corey Lind disappeared in the early morning hours of Dec. 8, 2007. Two days later his body was recovered in Monson.

Police say Corey Lind was lured from the Domino's on Boston Road in 2007 to a fake address by Alex Morales. Last month Morales was convicted of first-degree murder.

Michael Lind says the conviction gives his family some peace of mind.

"It's good to know that the man's in jail, he's never going to get out and he's going to pay for what he did for the rest of his life," he said.

But he considers Wednesday's ruling in court a defeat. He sued Domino's for $15 million. He says drivers like his son face dangers that often go unnoticed.

"They're under the cover of darkness, they're out there delivering to dark streets, dark neighborhoods and it's a hard setup."

He created Corey's Law to draw attention to the dangers. He says the bill would make safety measures like constant phone communication between drivers and the pizza shop a requirement.

While his son was killed on the job, he says a ruling in his favor today, could have potentially saved the lives of others.

"Helping out all the other drivers out there to make sure that this doesn't happen to somebody else, we were trying to make the big company pay attention," Michael Lind said.
