MASON CITY, IA – A lawsuit filed in north Iowa after a medical helicopter crash killed three people is now moving to federal courts.
This week, the lawsuit between Jay Langenbau and Med-Trans Corporation was removed from Cerro Gordo County. According to court documents, the case will now move to the US District Court Northern District of Iowa Central Division. The move was made because although Med-Trans operates in Mason City, their headquarters are in Texas and North Dakota.
The suit was filed after a crash in Cerro Gordo County earlier this year killed all three on board, including Shelly Langenbau, the wife of the plaintiff.
