Woman sues Cowboys, claims bench burned buttocks
A Texas woman is suing the Dallas Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones,
saying her buttocks was severely burned when she sat on a bench
outside Cowboys Stadium.
In a lawsuit filed last week in Tarrant Count, Jennelle Carrillo
said the black marble bench was in direct sunlight on a hot August
afternoon before a Cowboys scrimmage last year. A weather official
says the high temperature on that day was 101 degrees.
Carrillo’s lawyer, Michael Wash, said his client didn’t know the
extent of the burns until after receiving medical attention. The
lawsuit claims she was hospitalized and underwent skin grafts.
The lawsuit claims there were no warnings about sitting on the
benches in hot weather.
