The family of Nicholas Galinger has added a Ringgold restaurant as a defendant in its lawsuit over the traffic death of the rookie police officer.
The $25 million lawsuit was amended to include the Farm to Fork restaurant.
The lawsuit was against Janet Hinds, the former Soddy Daisy postmaster, who is charged with vehicular homicide in the case.
The complaint says the restaurant overserved Ms. Hinds in the hours prior to her allegedly striking the officer on Hamill Road.
Police said Ms. Hinds fled the scene after the incident on Feb. 23, 2019.
The suit is in Hamilton County Circuit Court.
