A New York jury has found that the airplane manufacturer that designed Cory Lidle's aircraft was not responsible for the crash that took the life of the Yankees hurler in 2006.
Lidle's small plane crashed into a Manhattan apartment building, killing both Lidle and his flight instructor.
Minnesota-based Cirrus Design Corp. was taken to court by Lidle's family, which said that the plane crashed because the flight controls jammed. The manufacturer contended that pilot error was to blame, and the National Transportation Safety Board came to the same conclusion after investigating the crash.
The Manhattan jury began deliberated Tuesday morning following a one-month trial.
