Narrative:The aircraft, a Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) Skyboy EX, N582YB, experienced a loss of power shortly after takeoff from Sandy River Airport - 03S, Sandy River, Oregon, and force landed on a road, sustaining substantial damage. Due to pilot taking off with known inoperative brakes, the aircraft was unable to stop in time to avoid a fence and the aircraft went through the fence and impacted the ditch alongside the road. The pilot then walked away from the wreckage and declared that he was not going to pay the owner of the aircraft for any damages since the engine losing power was not his fault. Owner subsequently sued the pilot and prevailed for the damages.
