Follow this, if you can.

A train engineer accidentally ran over his coworker, killing him. Coworker's estate sues the railroad company and wins. Engineer's now suing the railroad company because, basically, he feels bad that he killed his coworker and it's somehow their fault. Railroad company is now bringing the coworker's estate into that lawsuit by suing them because, well, the coworker had died.

So the engineer is suing the company, who's suing the coworker's estate, because the engineer has a guilt for killing his coworker.

I couldn't make it up if I tried. (Note: A lot of news agencies and such are reporting as the engineer suing the coworker's estate for the mental anguish the engineer has suffered because of said coworker's death.)

It's official: This decade will be forever known as the "Not-Me" decade, because no one wants to admit to their own fuck-ups.
