Stephanie Myles' article suggests that perhaps she wasn't alone.Some reports say the USTA staff were gone and she was alone.
It will be interesting to see what went on if this goes to trial and people give sworn testimony about what happened that night.
Behind the Bouchard family?s double fault in tax court - The Globe and MailI have read that Genie's father is very litigious and sued another party over some aspect of her career in the past.
Well, putting your European vacation pictures all over social media isn't the smartest idea such situation.The defendants are being charged with two counts of negligence.
The first (paragraph 37) claims "the aforesaid described incident and the resulting injuries to Ms. Bouchard were caused solely by the reason of the carelessness, negligence, wanton and willfull disregard on the part of Defendant USTA ... without any negligence on the part of Ms. Bouchard contributing hereto."
It also claims the USTA had "actual and/or constructive prior notice" of the dangerous conditions and that Bouchard has "been damaged and endured and continues to endure severe pain and suffering, and incurred and continues to incur significant economic loss, medical expenses and loss of enjoyment of life."
The Rogers Cup isn't the property of the USTA. It is owned by Tennis Canada.I think that would only apply to the US Open Series, not all tournaments in the U.S. Anyone else? I'm not 100% on this.
The ironic part of that, if I'm right, would be that the Rogers Cup would be included in that :lol:
When the light is off and you don't have much other choice? How else are you supposed to enter a room? :lol:When it first happened I read she went in the room when it was dark. How many people just walk into a dark room? So at most all she could say was she couldn't turn on a light (if indeed that is even true).
The law isn't a lottery.You have plenty of rights, but you don't have the right to turn misfortune into some sort of winning lottery ticket. Big difference.
Myles and Tebbutt write about Bouchard because she's a click-magnet but they're very indifferent to her, especially Tebbutt as he has the most obvious mancrush on Raonic.Myles is a Canadian and has always gone along with the PR surrounding Bouchard. For her to drop that tidbit is - interesting.
It's been two years. Time for journalists to find a new topic or for her to shut it down and say she has new musical interests, a new crush or just be firm an decline to answer the answer with her best Stepford wife smile to avoid any criticism.I bet she wished she'd never opened up that can of worms in the AO.
She didn't shook hands twice before a Fed Cup match. Big deal. First time was weird, second time should have been prevented by her parents, her agent or Tennis Canada but they're all shameless yes men.I want to sue her for her repeated unsportsmanlike behavior.
I believe Bouchard's lawyers are on contingency which means they get a percentage if she wins or a an agreed-upon fee or maybe even nothing at all if they lose.At this point, both sides have spent more than 1 million.
That seems crazy but it's the USA's justice system after all. Such a big amount would make her sign retirement papers before she walks out of the courtroom. :spit:I think the USTA will be lucky to get off with that number. Bouchard earned almost two million dollars per season in prize money alone the last two years before her fall. $20M might be the lost prize money alone. We never had a case like this before. If they use the winners prize and bonus ranking money for every tournament a top 20 player could have entered and theoretically won over the next 10 years, we are talking $100M plus easily.
