http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46663 Justice Baisley DEFENDANT SCHOOL district sought summary dismissal of a personal injury action brought by former Huntington High School football players who were stabbed during a melee in a practice field after a football game between Huntington High School and Amityville High School. Evidence indicated that Huntington school officials were informed of an “incident” between Huntington and Amityville students a week before the game, at which there might “be a problem.” The court denied summary dismissal. Considering evidence that Huntington officials did not contact Amityville school officials to apprise them of their security concerns; that no security personnel were assigned to or present at the practice field; and that Huntington officials allowed cheerleaders and spectators from both teams to enter the practice field, the court ruled that a question of fact existed as to whether Huntington school officials took appropriate precautions.
