Because with a pending law suit they can't get insurance for the event. You can't run an event like SOTW without insurance.

I also have a feeling that their energy is drained trying to fight it

A judge will more than likely rule in their (SOTW) favor HOWEVER, in the meantime it takes great resources $$$ to defend yourself.

Marc, if you need a witness with all your legal stuff I am willing to give a statement on your behalf. I actually saw the boat roll/flip as well that day. Mark

What is the latest info on this suit? How are things going? I found this today.....

$3 million awarded to spouse of passenger on a high speed boat which made too sharp a turn on Lake Michigan during the Michigan "Smoke on the Water Poker Run" resulting in his death.

Well if she got 3mm the personal injury lawyer got 1/3 plus expenses (costs like insurance investigators/accident reconstruction etc.)

Marc if they got mucho money where did the it come from? SOTW shouldn't have had any substantial assets and you and Bob wouldn't be personally liable. Did they get big judgements with no payoffs or did they actually collect from someone?

That would be interesting information. Things I'm interested in are:

1) What did the waiver look like and the wording.
2) Who was named in the lawsuit?
3) On what grounds was the award made and who was liable?
4) What kind of event insurance did they have and the limits?
5) What about the promoters.....did they have personal umbrella policies?
