Sure Enough, A Lawsuit Against the Radio Station

In a not-remotely-surprising (and entirely appropriate, in my view) action, the family of Jennifer Strange, the woman who died from water intoxication after participating in a radio station's "Hold your Wee for a Wii" contest, has filed suit.

It will certainly be interesting if we get to see the release in question, but this seems like an appropriate suit to be settled quickly, especially since, as I've previously suggested, I think the station's actions could reasonably be construed as gross negligence, claims for which I believe are not waivable under California law.

(Prior posts are here, here, and here.)
