It's kinda crazy how much resorts and shit are liable for out east. This wouldn't even be a case if it happened in CO.
What are you talking about, CO has had people sue for stupid shit also. People ducking ropes, dying, and their families suing. It's all about trying to blame others for your stupidity or bad luck.
This particular stupidity is on the judge who said it was cool to sue them. I mean seriously "failed to warn about the dangers of testing a board," this kid is fucking retarded. I feel bad that the kid is paralyzed, but what really sucks (in my opinion) is that he is going to get the money. Burton and Wentworth are going to pay him to end the lawsuit, which will open the doors for others to follow...
This is a dangerous sport-cowboy up.
