It's been a year since Katie Lasitter's feet were severed by the Superman: Tower of Power ride at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, and it astonishes me that the case is still going even now, especially after the various revelations since then (like, oh, this one). But discovery continues apace and now there's a trial date -- in 2010. There are 77 depositions yet to take (roughly evenly divided between the parties) and, intriguingly, Six Flags's counsel states that "Six Flags may also seek to add a defendant to the case." While he declined to identify that defendant, it seems like the manufacturer might come to mind.
