Updated: Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Settles Case

Six Flags has reached a settlement with the Lassiter family, whose daughter Kaitlyn had her feet severed when riding the Superman: Tower of Power ride in 2007.  Kentucky.com has the almost non-existent details; Biz Journals says that, unsurprisingly, the terms are not being released. 

The length of time it took to settle the case is remarkable, and a number of bad facts came out in the interim -- it may well be that those facts, in context, were not as bad as they seemed, but in the amusement industry, it would seem that this was a case that should have been settled a lot earlier.

Update: The local press has some more details; see the Courier-Journal,which notes that the plaintiffs' lawyer claims he didn't want to take the offer.
