Ballgame Lawsuit Settled

You may recall a post I wrote a couple of months ago about the God Bless America lawsuit that was filed against the New York Yankees. A fan sued the Yankees for not allowing him to go to the washroom during the playing of God Bless America during the seventh inning stretch.

The case has been settled. The Yankees have paid the plaintiff $10,001.00, plus his $12,000.00 attorney's fees, and they no longer have a policy restricting movement during the seventh inning stretch.

P.S. - Does anyone besides Dave and me think it's strange that the plaintiff's lawyer got more money than the plaintiff did? Just sayin'...
