ND hotel: Lawsuit over slide accident has no merit

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Defense attorneys say a lawsuit by a Canadian man who claims he was injured on a water slide at a Grand Forks hotel should be thrown out of federal court.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Defense attorneys say a lawsuit by a Canadian man who claims he was injured on a water slide at a Grand Forks hotel should be thrown out of federal court.

Randy Hooker of Winnipeg, Manitoba, says he suffered injuries to his head and neck in the 2007 accident. He says an attendant was not in place in the receiving pool when rode down the slide on a tube.

Hooker is seeking damages of more than $194,000 for medical bills, lost wages and other economic losses, and at least $75,000 for physical and mental injuries.

Canad Inn lawyers say the lawsuit has no merit and filed court documents earlier this week asking that the complaint be dismissed.
