2014 Case

Our case is a civil case.
The plaintiff was a minor child (under 17)  when she sustained a serious concussion during a college showcase soccer tournament on Friday, December 17, 2012.

The lawsuit argues that the coach and director of her soccer club were negligent in returning her to play too soon after an earlier concussion and are, therefore, liable for the injuries which she sustained.

Casey Larsen, parent of the injured player, Mia Larsen.
Dr. Alex Beckstead, concussion expert (qualify him as an expert witness!)
Harper Durant, North Canyon High School soccer coach

Shane Perez, Strikers Soccer Club Coach/ co-Defendant
Jordan Smith, Strikers Soccer Club Director/ co-Defendant

Chris Helu, classmate of Mia Larsen

Handbook 79-87.pdf 
    Fact Summaries
    Stipulations  (things that are already agreed upon)
    Evidence (12 pieces to choose from)
