Judge Dismisses Suit From Burn Victims

Laramie, Wy – This week a judge dismissed a lawsuit against Yellowstone National Park. Two men who say they mistakenly jumped in thermal pools and were critically burned filed the suit. Another woman died in the incident. The men who were 18 at the time say the government failed to provide adequate warnings of the danger.
The judge dismissed the case, said there will be no trial and announced he will issue his findings in writing. Assistant U-S attorney Nick Vassallo said he is pleased with the judge granted the motion, but said he's waiting for the official findings to comment further.
