N.J. family's Louisville Slugger lawsuit avoids trial

N.J. family's Louisville Slugger lawsuit avoids trial
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

A Wayne family whose son was left brain-damaged after being struck by a ball in a Little League game has reached a settlement in their lawsuit.

The family had sued Louisville Slugger, The Sports Authority, and New Jersey Little League in 2008 after then 12-year-old Steven Domalewski was hit in the chest by a line drive during a game in 2006. The case was set to go to trial on Sept. 10, but a settlement for $14.5 million was announced in state Superior Court Wednesday morning in Passaic County.

NorthJersey.com reported that after he was struck, Domalewski’s heart stopped beating, and his brain did not receive oxygen for 15 to 20 minutes. According to an Associated Press report on CBS News, doctors said the ball hit Domalewski at the exact millisecond between heartbeats, which led to cardiac arrest.

The family’s suit claimed that the aluminum bat used in the 2006 game is lighter and stronger than traditional wooden bats.
