The Wii Lawsuit

As one would expect, The Smoking Gun has the lawsuit against Entercom and its radio employees relating to the death of Jennifer Strange in the "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" contest.  The seventh page has a fairly remarkable list (which continues onto the eighth page) of the on-air statements relating to the DJs' knowledge of what was going on.

The suit expressly anticipates the possibility of a no-duty ruling (which seems unlikely to me) in asserting in the alternative reckless or intentional behavior.

The complaint is not included.  News coverage indicates that the FCC is looking into the incident as well.
