First Diane Schuler‘s husband Daniel Schuler sues his brother-in-law Warren Hance and New York State, and now we learn that Warren’s wife Jackie Hance filed a lawsuit against the Schuler estate last week, for the “extreme horror” her three daughters, Emma, 8, Alyson, 7, and Kate, 5, suffered before the crash that killed them.
Daniel Schuler is also suing New York state on the two-year anniversary of the devastating car accident.

Now, her husband Daniel Schuler is trying desperately to clear her name.
