Six Flags is sued because of Jokers Jinx getting stuck

Post: #1

Two years later, a Prince George’s County judge ordered Six Flags America to pay $10,000 to each of Benitez’s family members stuck that day, totaling $60,000 in damages.

The lawsuit is part of a set of legal actions against Six Flags since the dramatic 2014 rescue made national and international headlines.

Two riders had already settled out of court before the most recent judgment, and one of Benitez’s brothers — who said he suffered nerve damage from the incident — is expected to pursue his case in circuit court, where he has asked for damages in excess of $75,000, said Barry Helfand, the attorney who represented Benitez’s family.
