South Shore Baseball LLC v DeJesus Case Discussion
Juanita DeJesus was seriously injured when hit on the head by a foul ball at a minor league baseball game and sued the stadium operators for negligence and premises liability. The case progressed to the Indiana Supreme Court where the Indianapolis Indians urged the State Supreme Court to dispose of the premises liability and negligence claims in one fell swoop by adopting the so-called Baseball Rule, which provides that:
a ballpark operator that provides screening behind home plate sufficient to meet ordinary demand for protected seating has fulfilled its duty with respect to screening and cannot be subjected to liability for injuries resulting to a spectator by an object leaving the playing field.
Should the Court adopt this clear and unambiguous rule for the national pastime? Does the Court have authority to make such a ruling? How would you decide her negligence claim? [South Shore Baseball, LLC v. DeJesus, 11 N.E.3d 903 (Ind.)]
