***Former Broadcast Manager In Detroit Sues Bob Murray, Ducks***

THE TELETYPE:

Anaheim calling to the hockey world...

Rachel Paris, a former TV broadcast stage manager in Detroit, filed a lawsuit against the Ducks and Anaheim GM Bob Murray in the Eastern District Court of Michigan on Tuesday regarding an incident in the Joe Louis Arena press box at last year's Game 7 between the Ducks and the Red Wings.  The suit alleges Assault and Battery and Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress against Bob Murray, as well as Negligence against the Anaheim Ducks Hockey Club LLC and vicarious liability of the LLC for all of Bob Murray's actions.  You can read the full complaint at this link, courtesy of Court House News Service.

The incident, originally reported by MyFoxDetroit.com is recounted here by the LA Times' Helene Elliott.  Murray, apparently upset and angered by the events of the game, threw a barstool-like chair in the press box.  Paris claims the chair struck her and knocked her to the ground.  Her complaint alleges over $75,000 in damages (a requirement for federal court to have original jurisdiction between two parties who are citizens of different states), supported by her claim that she has had to undergo multiple surgeries related to the injury and is suffering from permanent disability affecting her earning potential.  Paris was 55 years old at the time of the incident.
