If the Preds are smart they just settle this by cutting him a $25k check and stay out of court. Shame that they didn't just step up in the first place and agree to pay any medical costs when it happened. I know that nobody wants to willingly give up thousands of dollars, but THAT story would have been much more positive for the organization.
this logic is why we have so many stupid lawsuits... people file claims against someone with deep pockets and/or insurance(which I am sure the preds have) because in most cases its easier and cheaper just to write a check than defend yourself in court.

If the guy was sent there by his radio station and more specifically, if he was on the clock while doing it, then he should be covered under Workmans Comp. WC may be the ones driving this suit if they feel the Preds were negligent... lawsuits usually take years to play out, so unless the preds decide to setlle, this will take a while..
