Woman Sues Dallas Cowboys Over Butt Burning- Say “What!?”
Talk about a "Cheeky" story. A woman was attending a Blue & Silver scrimmage game at Cowboys stadium back in '10, when she decided to sit on a bench. The problem was it was at least 100 degrees and the bench was made out of black marble. When she sat upon the bench that had been cooking in the sun, she burnt her bottom bad enough to get third degree burns. Her lawyer stated that she was hospitalized for weeks and had to get skin grafts for the injury.
Part of the lawsuit reads, “The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun. The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonable dangerous.” It goes on to say “the stadium didn’t warn Carrillo or others about hot bench dangers” and that “there were no signs posted warning that the bench was hot.”
The woman is seeking unspecified damages for mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement.
My question is who is not smart enough to realize that it would be hot? I don't think the stadium or team should be sued because they didn't put up signs, that is just asinine (no pun intended. Well, maybe a little.)
What are your thoughts? Do you think she should sue them, or is her case just bogus? Leave a comment below to let us know!
