More comments on the Missouri Supreme Court decision on assumption of the risk while watching a baseball game

Yesterday I reported on the Missouri Supreme Court's decision in the case against the Kansas City Royals for an injury caused by its mascot during a game.  The most important issue in the case was whether the plaintiff assumed the risk of injury by attending the game.  The court found that getting hit with a hot dog - as opposed to a baseball or a bat - thrown into the stands is not an inherent risk of watching baseball games.

Today, Prof. Jonathan Turley has a comment on the case in his website here.  The TortsProf blog also has a note here.
