Court records do not indicate the case has been settled. Rob Butcher, a Reds spokesman, said they do not comment on litigation matters. The Slushers’ attorney could not be reached for comment.
The lawsuit noted Slusher suffered “concussion; dental injuries causing loss of teeth and resulting in surgery; headaches; right hip sprain; has suffered severe and permanent injuries; has experienced severe pain and suffering and will continue to experience same in the future.”
It also claimed she will continue to have medical expenses, has lost wages, and “sustained a loss of the enjoyment of life.” They were seeking more than $25,000.
She bolstered her claim by saying the Reds knew of the danger because less than a month after her injury they announced plans to expand netting at the stadium.
