A little over a week ago an Orange County jury threw out a claim by 80 year old Marvin Cohen that the Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios caused him to have a stroke 3 weeks after riding it.
Mr Cohen has not given up though and is still seeking to get some kind of settlement from Disney. Lawyers for Mr. Cohen are argueing that the jury was not given adequate instructions before deliberations and are now demanding a retrial.
In a statement, Cohen's lawyers are saying that Judge Rodriguez should have told the jury to concider this a 'general negligence claim' and not a premisis liability claim, which involves different legal standards, and that the judge barred Cohen's lawyers from admitting various pieces of evidence showing just how dangerous Tower of Tower really is. Nevermind the fact that Disney lawyers did show the safety record for the ride and proved it to be totally safe.
