“A woman named Jennelle Carrillo is suing the team and Jerrah because, while attending the Blue and Silver scrimmage in August of 2010, she sat down on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium and suffered third-degree burns on her buttocks,” wrote Brinson.
“Prior to entering the seated area of Cowboys stadium, plaintiff sat down on a black, marble bench outside of and near entrance ‘E’ to the stadium,” the lawsuit reads, per Brinson. “The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun. The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonably dangerous.”
“As a result of sitting on the bench, plaintiff suffered third degree burns to her buttocks,” the lawsuit reads per Brinson.
It’s amazing what people sue for. Don’t people realize that it get’s hot in Texas and a metal bench can burn you. Usually when it’s really hot, intelligent people will check the bench before sitting down.
