Depositions of the bus driver and the bus company owner are finished in the Hart County bus crash civil suit that was filed shortly after the accident in June of 2012.
It names the bus company, New Image Travel, the driver, Timothy Saum and the tour agency WorldStrides.
"WorldStrides, the touring company, did nothing to investigate the qualifications of this bus company or the bus driver himself, even though their marketing materials assured parents they were doing that very thing," said Bowling Green attorney Mike Breen.
Breen has been handling the case for almost 15 months now.
He has said all along this is a system failure.
"The bus company allowed the driver to take the children on this tour even though he was disqualified under the company's own rules because he did not have enough experience," said Breen.
When asked about bus driver Timothy Saum's experience, New Image Travel owner Rick Juelfs said it would surprise him if driver Saum was an entry-level driver.
This stems from the bus crash on Highway 728 between Cub Run and Bonnieville that was carrying students to Washington D.C. for a trip.
Breen said Saum should not have even been driving, because of the law.
"The bus driver knew he was a diabetic and was severe enough as a diabetic that he was disqualified by law from driving the bus at all," said bus driver Timothy Saum.
Saum did not tell a doctor he took insulin, and he said he has no idea why he didn't.
Attorney Chad Sizemore representing defendants in the case said, just because something is said in a deposition, doesn't mean it can be used as evidence in court.
He also said they're working on settlements for the damages people sustained in the wreck.
Sizemore also said there is a mediation scheduled in December, where a possible settlement could get worked out.
