New York's Supreme Court has denied the attempts by Mavis Discount Tire to dismiss a dozen civil lawsuits against the company.

The lawsuits were filed by families of the victims of the 2018 Schoharie limo crash.

Mavis inspected and worked on the brakes on the 2001 stretch limo involved in the crash.

The company says their actions did not cause the crash, and cannot be held accountable.

There is a criminal case against the limo company owner, Nauman Hussain.

Twenty people died in the crash, including the limo driver, 17 passengers, and two pedestrians in a parking lot.
