A Texas woman is suing the Dallas Cowboys Organization after sustaining third degree burns on her buttocks while at a team scrimmage in August 2010. Jennelle Carillo of Cleburne filed a lawsuit in a Tarrant County civil court alleging that the organization was negligent for not having warning signs indicating that the marble benches outside of the stadium would be hot.
Carillo’s lawyer, Michael Wash says his client suffered “mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement as a result of her wounds.” The suit goes on to state that bench “was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun. The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonably dangerous.” The Cowboys Organization has yet to comment on the lawsuit citing ongoing litigation.
