DUCKING FOR DOLLARS? WOMAN SUES LEMIEUX, PENS OVER ACCIDENT
Published September 29, 1994
Mario Lemieux is a defendant in a civil suit filed by a woman who was hit in the nose by a hockey puck at a game five years ago. The incident occurred during a Penguins-Rangers game while play was stopped because of a fight. The woman, Patricia Ward, is suing both Lemieux and the Penguins for negligence since Lemiuex flipped the puck during a timeout -- a violation of NHL rules. Her attorney, Charles Evans, noted a precedent -- a woman struck by a baseball during batting practice at Three Rivers successfully suing for damages (Jan Ackerman, PITTSBURGH POST- GAZETTE, 9/29).
