Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit affrims SD Ind.'s 2005 United States Grand Prix race ruling

In IN RE: 2005 United States Grand Prix (SD Ind., Sarah Evans Barker, Judge), a 14-page opinion, Judge Cudahy writes:

The defendants organized a car race. Although twenty cars were originally scheduled to race, fourteen of the twenty did not participate after it was discovered that a flaw in their tires rendered them dangerous for use at full speed on one part of the track. Disappointed fans sued, seeking their expenses in attending and viewing the race. The district court dismissed the complaint for failure to state a claim on which relief can be granted. The plaintiffs appeal; we affirm.
