A Pennsylvania judge is getting ready to make a decision about whether or not to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a woman who lost her husband. The case started when Anthony Cantafio was working as a volunteer for football games in the Valley View School District. Cantafio was a statistician and was working on the sidelines when a player ran into him.
When he was struck by the player, Cantafio fell backward and hit his head on the asphalt running surface that surrounds the football field.
The lawsuit filed by his widow contends that the architect and contractor who designed the field were negligent because “they placed the asphalt surface too close to the field.” Attorneys for the school district say they are immune from liability under state law. They also say that Cantafio knew there was a risk of injury.
