The family of a man who was among three who died in May 2014 when a motorboat sank in Lake Michigan near Chicago has sued the boat-sharing and rental service business the family contends was responsible for the boat’s maintenance in the days before it took on water and ultimately went down. On Sept. 28, Tamara Sopka, sister of Orest Sopka, filed a wrongful death complaint against Creative Yacht Management Inc., a company which does business as SailTime Chicago.
