NRI Telugu bidda Raghunandan Yandamuri’s upcoming court trial for murder, kidnapping and a litany of other offenses is getting a new rival for attention of the Telugu diaspora in America.
Venkata Venna, whose daughter and mother were allegedly killed by Raghunandan Yandamuri in October last year, has recently launched a legal battle on behalf of the estates of his two murdered family members and on his own behalf in a Pennsylvania court.
If Venna wins the personal injury civil case, he may get millions of dollars.
U.S. juries are unpredictable and sometimes award huge damages that run into millions.
Venkata Venna filed the lawsuit on November 7, 2013 at the Court of Common Pleas Philadelphia.
Venna is represented by John I.McMahon, a personal injury attorney from Norristown, PA.
Vennas – Great Anguish
The Venna family’s life has been torn asunder by the twin murders allegedly at the hands of a fellow Telugu last October at the Marquis Apartments in Upper Merion Township, Pennsylvania.
If any family deserves compensation for extreme suffering, it’s the Vennas.
They were greatly wronged and now a U.S. jury will decide if Venna should receive any compensation for the suffering that Venkata Venna alleges was the result of negligence, carelessness and reckless conduct of some parties.
In his capacity as Administrator of the estates of Saanvi Venna and Satyavathi Venna and on his own behalf, Venkata Venna has sued three property management firms (Metropolitan Properties of America, JEG Associates Limited and Marquis Associates Limited), a security services company (U.S. Security Associates) and the root cause of his family’s tragedy, Raghunandan Yandamuri.
In the complaint, Venna has alleged that the property management firms and security company failed to ensure a safe and secure premise at the Marquis apartment where his daughter and mother were murdered.
In all, Venkata Venna is seeking compensatory damages on seven counts including one count of punitive damages.
Venna has not specified the exact amount of compensation he is seeking except that it has to be more than $50,000 on each count.
There is a good chance that Venkata Venna might get a hefty sum of money from the property management and security firms if he wins the case against them.
It’s possible a settlement may be reached between Venkata Venna and some of the defendants before trial begins.
But Venna has zero chance of getting any money from Raghunandan Yandamuri, who is now in Montgomery County jail awaiting trial on charges of murdering Saanvi Venna and Satyavathi Venna.
Raghunandan Yandamuri has little or no money and until recently had a public defender representing him in the murder case.

Hope for the best for India. Anyway yesterday I saw Obama’s speech on the issue of inequality.
India also needs a leader like him.
Obama is a ball-less Chutiya.
I don’t think you’re reading enough! 🙁
Mr. Venna has little chance of winning this in a fair jury, to be honest this was as random as a crime could get, the alleged baby-killer had no prior criminal record before setting the record on criminal charges faced by an Indian origin person in the US.
I believe Venna is trying to get closure and is obviously bitter about the incident (as anyone in his position would be).
He will settle out of court, because the companies wont want to be seen as “yeeevil” and would want him to go away ASAP.
1. You write: Mr. Venna has little chance of winning this in a fair jury,
If Venkata Venna’s contention that there were short-cuts/lapses in security measures to save money is proven, he stands a good chance of winning.
As every potential juror in America knows, cost-cutting is seen as the panacea for all problems in corporate America, the elixir that will yield higher profits.
So even a small lapse by the property management/security firms will be magnified as a cost-cutting measure that went horribly awry. (BTW, I’ve provided a copy of Venkata Venna’s lawsuit against the various parties at the end of the above post. A quick glance at the lawsuit will support my point.)
But as I in my post and you in your comment have noted there’s a good chance of the case being settled before it gets to trial.
The property management firms and security company are unlikely to take a chance with unpredictable juries, particularly if there are lapses on their part as alleged by Venkata Venna!
Also, they won’t want to appear “yeevil” to the world.
2. But what puzzles me is the lawsuit against Yandamuri, the alleged killer who is languishing in jail!
Salman Khan will turn a Buddhist monk before Raghunandan Yandamuri amasses enough money to buy a pair of Nike sneakers! 😉
On Venna’s suit against Raghunandan Yandamuri, there could be more to it than meets the eye.
