Hotel Wants Injury Judgement Reversed
(Las Vegas, NV) — A Las Vegas resort is asking the Nevada Supreme Court to toss out a multi-million dollar injury verdict.
Enrique Rodriguez was watching football at the Palms in November 2004, when a female patron dived for a souvenir and hit him in the knee.
A judge awarded him $6.1 million. Palms officials say it was a “freak” accident, but Rodriguez’s attorneys questioned whether the hotel’s “souvenir toss” promotion was a good idea.
