The Carnahan family has decided not to pursue a new trial asking for punitive damages from an airplane parts manufacturer. The family had received about $2.4-Million from Parker-Hanifan, the maker of a part on the plane the crashed almost four years ago, killing Governor Mel Carnahan, his son Randy, and campaign aide Chris Sifford. The jury that awarded the actual damages did not award any punitive damages. The Carnahan family has let a deadline for an appeal of that finding to expire without trying a new action for punitive penalties.
