The nasty legal battle over Paul Walker's fatal car crash continues, nearly three years after the blazing wreck. In the latest development, RadarOnline.com has learned, the widow of the driver in the crash has headed back to court to appeal a judge's decision to throw out her case against Porsche.

Kristine Rodas previously filed suit against Porsche, the maker of the death car, claiming the Porsche Carrera her husband was driving with Paul Walker in the passenger seat had a faulty part in the suspension which caused the car to crash.

She said Roger tried to keep the car on the road, but could not regain control before hitting a light pole. She also blames Porsche for the car exploding on impact, claiming the vehicle lacked a proper "crash cage" and a "racing fuel cell." Further, she accused Porsche of ignoring multiple fatal crashes that occurred in the model and failing to take steps to warn their customers.

Porsche fired back at the lawsuit, claiming they are not at fault for her husband's death and that it was solely the result of his own actions while driving their car. In April, the federal court judge sided with the luxury car company by throwing out the entire case, even before it was heard before a jury.

But RadarOnline.com can reveal that the widow headed back to court on September 1, 2016, and filed papers informing the judge she is appealing his decision to dismiss her lawsuit.

She believes the judge did not make the right decision in granting Porsche's motion for a summary judgement, which resulted in the entire case being dismissed. She has yet to reveal the reasons she believes the judge was in error.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Meadow Walker, Paul's daughter, recently settled for $10 million dollars with the Estate of Roger Rodas, who she believed was partly to blame for the fatal accident. It is unclear how much of that was paid for by his insurance company.

Meadow is still in the middle of litigation in a separate lawsuit against Porsche over the crash.
