ELIZABETH – Joseph Suliga was killed because a careless driver slammed into a car, which was illegally parked by its driver, his widow claims. Annmarie Pukulski wants jurors to award her unspecified damages in a wrongful death claim in which she contends that her 47-year old husband should not have died outside a Linden go-go bar in 2005.
Annmarie Pakulski wants jurors to side with her and award unspecified damages in a wrongful death claim in which she contends her 47-year-old husband should not have died outside of Cheeques Go-Go Bar in Linden on Feb. 18, 2005.
The trial got underway last Wednesday in Superior Court in Elizabeth. Pakulski blames the driver of the car Suliga was in, Nicholas Sorrentino of Cranford, for carelessness. His 2003 Infiniti G35 was parked in front of Cheeques on East Linden Avenue, blocking three quarters of the road according to Pakulski’s lawyer.
