Great moments in court of appeals rulings.
You may recall that a Kansas man sued the Kansas City Royals, alleging that a hot dog thrown by the team’s mascot — Sluggerrr — at a September 2009 game struck him in the eye and detached his retina. The case went to trial in 2011 and the Royals — and Sluggerr — won. The plaintiff appealed. He just won the appeal.
Short version: the appeals court did not agree with the trial court’s instructions on assumption of the risk. Presumably this means a retrial. Or, more likely, a settlement of some kind.
