Paul Walker's estate alleges possession of personal property

Los Angeles: Actor Paul Walker's estate has filed a lawsuit against a man's estate, alleging it failed to return vehicles owned by the "Fast and Furious" star. The suit is against the estate of Roger W Rodas, who was behind the wheel when he and Walker died in a car wreck in November 2013. The actor was 40.

Walker's estate said Rodas was in possession of 17 cars, including a 1969 Ford Mustang and a 2010 Audi R8, owned by Walker that have not been returned to his estate, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The suit said that Walker's estate demanded the return of the vehicles both orally and in writing, but Rodas' estate refused the return of the vehicles. It went on to allege that prior to the accident, Rodas sold vehicles that were partially or wholly owned by Walker, but his monetary share of the sales were not delivered to the actor's estate.

According to the suit, in November 2014, Walker's estate filed a Creditor's Claim seeking the return of the vehicles and the monetary share of sales. The suit claimed that one month later Rodas' estate filed a Rejection of Creditor's Claim rejecting the claim.

Walker's estate claimed that Rodas' estate has refused to deliver possession of the plaintiff's vehicles.

The actor's estate is seeking "compensatory damages for the value of the property converted and for the proximate and foreseeable loss resulting, therefrom in an amount to be determined at the time of trial." A trial by jury was also demanded.
