Nothing like a flagrant barn yard animal with some pizazz trying to ruin everybody’s evening.

Smart dentists have disability insurance, yes.

i think he's justified too; he'd be losing a lot of income by not working 4 months

some could argue that he by putting his arm out for a high five, he is accepting the risk of injury.

this reminds me of the time when i almost sued the gym...it was near closing time, i was taking a shower in the locker rooms, and they turned the lights out without checking if people were still in the locker rooms etc; i tripped over a stone ledge that surrounded the shower...i didn't get any serious injury otherwise i'd be counting dollars right now

Yet he still stayed for the entire game? :confused:

Would you leave with courtside tickets? HA

In all honesty, isn't there a contract on the back of the ticket that says that the Arena and team are not liable and by coming you accept all risks involved?

That seems to me like a frivolous lawsuit to me, as the Bull did not intentionally cause the injury. It was an accident! Is he going to be out of money for a while? Yes, but he would also be out of money had he fallen while getting out of his seat, fallen on his wrist playing golf, rolling out of bed, or any number of other accidents. There is no reason to sue some mascot over this.

I second the notion that he would be covered if (and he should) have disability insurance.
