Predators deny liability in 'human hockey puck' stunt gone wrong

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 2:12pm

The Nashville Predators are denying all liability related to a botched “human hockey puck” stunt gone wrong that resulted in a broken ankle for a local radio personality.

Adam Davis, known over the airwaves as Intern Adam on WRVW-107.5 The River, sued the Predators last month after he was slung across the ice and crashed foot first into the boards during an intermission stunt.

The lawsuit claimed the Predators failed to protect Davis and failed to notify him of the involved risks. Davis didn’t sign a waiver, according to his attorney.

The three defendants being sued — Nashville Predators LLC, Predators Holdings LLC, and Powers Management LLC — all acknowledged that it is actually Nashville Hockey Club LP who operates the promotions at the arena.

Nevertheless, they offered up several defenses that attempt to absolve the organization of liability, including “comparative fault.”

“If the promotional activity referenced in the Complaint contained inherent danger, such danger was open and obvious,” the answer, filed by local firm Baker Donelson, read. “Thus, Plaintiff assumed the risk of injury and/or damages when he elected to participate in the activity.”

The Predators also argued that Davis failed to take “reasonable and ordinary care” for his own safety.

The answer also asks that the suit be dismissed without prejudice.

Davis’ attorney Bill Leader and Predators’ counsel Brigid Carpenter weren’t immediately available for comment on Wednesday afternoon.

If anyone in Nashville would get hurt by this, it would be the very fragile "intern Adam". This guy is a puntz. He crashed into PADDED boards. He's the one who stuck his foot out before he hit the PADS. Just for the record, there were 18 INCH THICK PADS against the boards that he crashed into.
