Outta The Court, April 9, 2019 – Fighting In Sports

Court is in Session!

Criminal lawyers Adam Goodman and Scott Cowan are joined by Barry Davis to discuss teammates fighting, more like infighting.

The Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan case is explored. What are some of the legalities that never came to the fore? How has a case like theirs influenced modern day precedent?

In the MLB, the altercation between Jonathan Papelbon and Bryce Harper explores how an injury, if sustained during the row, would be handled by insurance and the team. Would the team be covered by insurance if one teammate injured another?

CFL Players Angelo Mosca and Joe Kapp got into fracas at a league luncheon. What legal mechanisms were in place on behalf of the league? Did they act accordingly? Something called social host liability is discussed.

Scott Cowan drops a mind blowing legal bomb about bar fights that sends the trio off into a rabbit hole. Its a great organic conversation that develops.

The guys finish off with “The British Soccer” riot and how the effects of the riot affected those in the stands. Do the fans have a case, legally, with regards to trauma? Is the soccer club liable?

Yeah… All that.

Its Outta The Court!
