(Cleveland) — A jury says the Cleveland Indians aren't responsible for injuries to a New York man hit by a foul ball at a baseball game in July 2012 and blinded in one eye.
Cleveland.com reports the decision late last week in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court means Keith Rawlins, of Rochester, gets no money from his lawsuit against the team.
The attorney representing the Indians, Todd Hicks, says he's pleased with the decision. The team had argued the case could have wide-ranging implications for ballparks and teams around the nation.
Rawlins claimed he turned away from the field because he was distracted by stadium personnel forcing him to relocate for a postgame fireworks show. The team has said Rawlins moved voluntarily.
