Update: Lawsuit over drowning at nudist party at pool settled.

It’s being reported that the lawsuit I reported on in the blog It’s always sad when someone dies, but sometimes the facts can be…..interesting. The plaintiffs are going to accept $250,000 to settle this suit.

The facts surrounding the suit are pretty thing and of course you can speculate for years over what happened. (Do you rescue a nude person the same way you rescue one with a bathing suit on?) The same goes with the legal issues, was a released signed? Does Pennsylvania recognize negligence per se which would void the release. Negligence per se is negligence which is based on the violation of a statute or law. So not having a life guard which is required by law may prevent may defenses from being used.
