The letter states that Virgil Parks worked at Mavis and purchased a brake cylinder to install in the Prestige Limo vehicle on May 4, 2018, but later learned from another employee the part was never replaced in the limousine.

"Stated otherwise, Mavis's fraudulent conduct — not anything undertaken by defendant Nauman Hussain — was the true legal cause of the accident," Hussain's attorney wrote.

Federal safety records obtained by NBC News after the crash in 2018 indicated that Prestige Limo had multiple safety violation citations, including having "brakes out of service."

The "brakes out of service" citation, issued after a March 21 inspection, indicated that 20 percent or more of the roughly 5-ton vehicle's stopping power was compromised.
