ChicagoNow.com is reporting on the lawsuit filed over the injury sustained by the hockey puck to the head at the Skokie, Illinois, Chuck E. Cheese.
A Chicago area woman alleges in her lawsuit that she took a hockey puck to her cabeza suffering a head injury with memory loss (this may actually be a blessing if she was eating what passes for pizza in these joints.)
Reyna Mason, 45, filed a lawsuit in February against the parent company of the childrens' party palace: CEC entertainment, Inc. Mrs. Mason says the restaurant didn't take adequate precautions to guard against injury from the air hockey table. Mrs. Mason was in a booth, eating pizza and drinking pop at a Skokie Chuck E. Cheese's when a puck flew from an air hockey table and struck her on the right side of the head on Feb. 22, 2008, according to her attorney Sheldon Aberman.
Mason was there with her 9-year-old son as well as a friend and his 10-year-old child, Aberman said.
Frankly, when my children were small I had the occasion to be in a few of these places, and I would think any potential juror who's had the experience would be biased and prejudiced in favor of the plaintiff as these places are preternaturally hostile, chaotic and emotionally injurious HELLS-ON-EARTH!
