    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    I don't really try to follow Reedy Creek. The personal injury litigation against them is pretty sporadic and they are unlikely to attract the kind of class actions worth mentioning. As a public entity, they are not subject to the National Labor Relations Act so the real interesting stuff is...

    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    And we have our first Galaxy's Edge related lawsuit at WDW. Seems a six year old boy broke his arm while at DHS one June 2018 night by tripping over the lighting for the "mural of the Millennium Falcon."

    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    Without meaning to disagree in substance, I'll clarify that I did not pick and chose among the newly filed lawsuits. The only arbitrary selection on my part was the cut-off date. The newly filed lawsuits were all the ones recently (since mid-April or so) filed in Orange County Court...

    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    Most of the time I defend people sued so it is an occupational hazard for me to be skeptical about any claim in any lawsuit. Many lawyers who draft complaints have a bad habit of grossly overstating injuries or circumstances. The bad habit applies to many litigators, including some who defend...

    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    Not much. Spikes is charged with three offenses: burglary, fencing and grand theft third degree. Like many states, Florida bases theft offenses on the property value allegedly stolen. The value here is more than 5k but less than 10k. He is out on bail ($5,300). Last week, Disney appears to...

    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    The court is very likely to enforce a settlement agreement if the evidence shows the plaintiff's counsel agreed to the material terms. That's a big if, of course, and depends on what the parties discussed. Often times, lawyers agree to the basic settlement terms understanding that other...

    WDW Litigation Update for June 15, 2019

    Readers of this forum seem to have an interest (likely one that falls into the morbid category) about Walt Disney World litigation. I could update threads but will instead link to them here. I do this update because lawsuit get tons of sensational publicity when filed but the media often loses...

    I've seen a few attempts at those lawsuits (and thought one was filed against Disney a while back) but without agreed upon (or regulations) design standards, the lawsuits tend to wither.

    DVCFan Blog Fonts

    I checked the blog article from June 11, 2019 to see an example. Understand, I permanently wear pretty strong reading glasses (cheap ones, though) without which I have to squint through slits to read even large text. I also have an iPhone Xs Max. I didn't have too much of an issue with the...

    Poly Bird Lawsuit

    Historically, and still (in most states) the legal duties of a landowner varied depending on the status of the injured party. Essentially, a landowner has less of a duty toward a "trespasser" than she does to a social guest and less of a duty to a social guest than a "business invitee." As you...

    Poly Bird Lawsuit

    Lawyers, for all their bluff and arrogance, are often easily offended. Indeed, in my experience, the more arrogant the lawyer, the quicker they take offense.

    Poly Bird Lawsuit

    Using "Judge Judy" and "think" in the same sentence is too much for me to comprehend.

    Poly Bird Lawsuit

    Since it was mentioned on the podcast, I'll say that this is a bizarre lawsuit. Whatever appears in the press, the complaint alleges the guest was walking along the dock where the boat to the MK launches when she was "struck in the head by a bird." There is no mention in the complaint of any...

    Where has Charles been ?

    Negative comments about food reviews are ubiquitous. When Kevin didn't like something, he got accused of having too refined a palate.

    SWGE YouTube Content Comments

    Speaking of negative feedback, anyone following Ryan on twitter will get a lesson in checking or carrying on a Light Saber. I didn't know there was a TSA page for Light Sabers. https://twitter.com/ryno1185

    SWGE YouTube Content Comments

    I completely agree with you. Trolls live to upset viewers/readers. It is rare that the live podcast doesn't have at least one negative vote on Youtube in the interim between the start of the podcast and when the host makes an appearance. Pity the troll for their miserable existence.

    Are there any 'bad' rooms at AKL?

    Several years ago, 2008, we were given room 4007. It was a "standard" room with a view of the front of the resort. As "views" go, this wasn't great but the room was an accessible one and was right next to the lobby. We enjoyed it even if we didn't have a view of the Savannah. We had no issue...
