Harry Connick Jr. denies any responsibility in his daughter's car crash and wants the $25k lawsuit tossed out of court. In legal documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, the 56-year-old Independence Day actor claimed no wrongdoing for the 2022 accident in Los Angeles involving his adult daughter, Sara Kate Connick, and the plaintiff, Myrika Hairston, who claimed she sustained injuries in the collision.

Harry Connick Jr. accused the woman suing him and his family of "game-playing tactics."

Hairston had alleged she suffered “hospital and medical expenses" over the crash. She sued Harry and his daughter, citing that Sara was driving, but the actor and his wife, Jill, were the "owners" of the vehicle.

Harry filed a response to the lawsuit on August 28, arguing that if Hairston obtained any injuries or damages from the accident, it was of no fault to him or his daughter.

Instead, he pointed the finger at whoever was driving the vehicle Hairston was riding in.

"Defendant is informed and believes and thereupon alleges that the incident, injuries, and damages, if any, mentioned in the Complaint were proximately caused and contributed to by the negligence of the Plaintiff and by the negligence of the operator of the vehicle in which the Plaintiff was riding, in that she did not exercise ordinary care on her own behalf or on behalf of the others in the vehicle at the time and place alleged and the negligence of each is imputed to the other," the documents read.

The Hope Floats star also argued, "If Plaintiff sustained damage as alleged in the Complaint, that damage was proximately caused and contributed to by persons, entities or parties" other than him or his daughter.

Harry denied every claim in Hairston's lawsuit, alleging she "failed to take reasonable steps and make reasonable expenditures to reduce" her claims, damages, and losses, if any.

He alleged the "Plaintiff's Complaint fails to state facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action against this answering Defendant." Harry doesn't want the accuser to receive a dime of his movie money.

"Wherefore, this answering Defendant prays the Plaintiff takes nothing, and that this answering Defendant be dismissed hence with costs of suit incurred herein, and for such other further relief as the Court deems fit and proper," he stated in his response.

RadarOnline.com has reached out to Connick's attorney for comment.
