Negligence and Athletic Events.
Mawdsley, Ralph D.
School Business Affairs, v67 n1 p18-20 Jan 2001
Although athletic events generate their share of negligence lawsuits, the relatively small number, compared with other education areas, suggests that defenses (like assumption or risk and contributory negligence) have a better fit in athletics. Implications of newer litigation trends involving coaches' misconduct and interpretation of state recreational-use statutes are discussed. (Contains 15 references.) (MLH)
