Ind. Supreme Court to hear foul ball injury case

Court News Posted on

The Indiana Supreme Court is taking up the case of a woman who wants to sue a minor-league baseball team over injuries she suffered when a foul ball struck her during a game.

The court was scheduled to hear oral arguments Thursday in Juanita DeJesus' effort to sue the Gary SouthShore RailCats over fractured facial bones and blindness in her left eye she says were caused by a ball striking her during a May 2009 game.

The Times of Munster reports DeJesus sued the RailCats' parent company in 2011 alleging it failed to install protective netting for spectators.

A local judge initially allowed her suit to proceed, but the Indiana Court of Appeals threw it out last year, ruling that foul balls' dangers are well-known to baseball fans.
