Porsche may have scored a victory in the case of the crash that killed Paul Walker, but his daughter isn't giving up the fight just yet.
As we previously reported, a judge threw out the lawsuit filed by the family of the man driving during the deadly accident, Roger Rodas.

While this seems like it would be bad news for the Fast & Furious star's daughter, Meadow Walker — who is also suing the car company for the wrongful death of her famous father — the teenager's lawyer, Jeff Milam says it doesn't affect her complaint, writing in a statement:
"Today's ruling by a federal judge in favor of Porsche Cars North America against Rodas has no effect on Meadow Walker's lawsuit that is pending against Porsche AG, Porsche Cars North America, and Beverly Hills Porsche in Los Angeles Superior Court."
In fact, the 17-year-old's legal rep claimed that the differences in the details between Roger and Paul's deaths show that the manufacturer is to blame for the actor's tragic passing:
"The issues in the cases are very different. The federal case was filed on behalf of Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT and was killed instantly upon impact. Meadow's father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle's defects."
He also admitted that the driver's family didn't properly present their argument:
"A significant portion of the judge's decision was based on his rejection of evidence because of missed deadlines and also a failure to sue Porshe AG, the manufacturer."
Jeff concluded by saying that the movie star's little girl isn't giving up on her own legal battle because of the recent ruling:
"Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills."
We just hope the responsible party faces the appropriate consequences, and that Meadow's case brings her family closure.
