New Trial in Sluggerr Hot Dog Lawsuit

BBTF, the go to site for Mascot Jurisprudence:

The Supreme Court ruled that the trial judge made an error by instructing jurors to decide whether the risk of injury from the hot dog toss was “an inherent risk” of watching a Royals baseball game. That was a question that the judge should have decided, according to Tuesday’s ruling.

The jury instead should have been asked to decide whether Sluggerrr injured Coomer by hitting him with a hot dog and whether that constituted negligence.

Well, I'm glad they cleared that up.

Whew, Missouri Supreme Court ... so not the law of the land. That dumb new Cub mascot can breathe easy for a while.

EDIT: Disappointed it's not Ron Coomer.

Did they ever come to a decision in Flanders v. Springfield Speedway?

I hadn't heard about this for awhile, so its nice to ketchup. I will relish the outcome in this one.

I think Coomer's probably just a spoiled brat.

Yes but Judge Snyder ruled that we may never speak of it again.
