Korey Stringer's Widow vs common sense.Remember way back when when we talked somewhere on here, that I can't find now, about how ridiculous her suing Riddell was? Well, it looks like she might win.
My favorite part is this part:
Holschuh wrote it was "reasonably foreseeable ... that a user of [Riddell's] helmets and shoulder pads during extremely hot and humid conditions might suffer from a heat stroke." Thus, Holschuh concluded, Riddell "owed Stringer a duty to warn."
So, in other words, it was so obvious that wearing extra layers of padding, and a really thick hat could make a person warmer when it's already extremely hot.....that they need to specifically warn people against it?
