The family of a woman killed by a tandem float during the Krewe of Nyx parade in 2020 has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the krewe, captain Julie Lea and the driver of the float.

Geraldine Turner Carmouche died when she was run over and crushed by the float. Her family claims in the lawsuit that the Krewe of Nyx, float driver Desmond Williams, floatbuilder PFJ Floats and krewe captain Julie Lea and the City of New Orleans were negligent and failed to take precautions to prevent Carmouche's death.

Doug Sunseri, attorney for Nyx and its captain, called Carmouche's death a "horrible tragedy" and said he expected the insurance companies to handle the case "appropriately. "As for Lea, Sunseri said the individual claims against her do not have merit. Cliff Cardone, a New Orleans-based personal injury attorney who is not involved in this case, said most of the defendants are likely to be covered by the broad immunity against damages provided to Mardi Gras parades in state law.
