When you are worth around $2 billion and own one of the most successful franchises (from a business standpoint) in all of sports, being served with lawsuit shouldn’t come as a suprise. However, something tells me even this one could surprise Jerry Jones.
According to CBS in Dallas-Fort Worth, a woman named Jenelle Carrillo has filed a lawsuit against the Cowboys and Jones after she allegedly suffered third-degree burns on her backside by sitting on a hot bench outside Cowboys Stadium.
“She sat down on this black bench, outside an entrance and unfortunately she suffered third-degree burns as a result of it and had subsequent skin grafts,” Carrillo’s attorney Michael Walsh explained. “She knew, while she was there at the stadium, that she had received some burns. But she didn’t realize how serious they were until she received medical attention.”
Walsh said Carrillo spent a week in the hospital receiving treatment for the burns. The incident allegedly occurred in August before the Blue and Silver scrimmage on a day where the temperature rose above 100 degrees. The lawsuit states that the Cowboys Stadium staff failed to alert visitors that sitting on the bench could result in injury.
Maybe we have seen it all.
