Re: Skier Spent The Night on a Lift at Gore

I assume his motive was he was going to sue Orda like the person at Killington did last yr

Why isn’t Sacramento guy not getting charged with something like this by now?

Not much here except the word "arrested" which I hadn't seen:

The story is far from over.  Now the guy has hooked up with lawyers who plan to sue.

"JOHNSBURG — The lawyer for a North Creek man who was accused of lying to police when reporting that he was stuck on a Gore Mountain Ski Center lift overnight earlier this year said his client is taking the case to trial because he didn’t make a false statement. . . ."

Re: Skier Spent The Night on a Lift at Gore

Not surprised. I’m curious if anyone believes he was actually on the lift overnight. I’m skeptical. I found the last couple paragraphs the most interesting

“Zuckerman said Hyde at first had no intention to sue Gore or the state-run Olympic Regional Development Authority.

But after his arrest, he retained the law firm of Brennan & White, which recently filed a notice of claim against the state. A notice of claim is the precursor to a lawsuit that is required when planning litigation against a municipal agency.

Hyde, meanwhile, is dealing with the ramifications of being branded a liar and questioning whether he can ski on the mountain he has skied for decades. He also worked there part-time years ago.

“He feels like he can’t ski at Gore anymore. This is his home mountain,” Zuckerman said.

The case is pending before acting Johnsburg Town Justice Eric Schwenker, but no trial date had been set as of Wednesday.”

How much do you award for alienation of home mountain?

Suing ought to fix that right up.

Not sure what you are asking. Is the question did he spend the night on the lift?
