  • Alleged Tower of Tower stroke victim demanding a new trial

    A little over a week ago an Orange County jury threw out a claim by 80 year old Marvin Cohen that the Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios caused him to have a stroke 3 weeks after riding it.

    Mr Cohen has not given up though and is still seeking to get some kind of settlement from Disney. Lawyers for Mr. Cohen are argueing that the jury was not given adequate instructions before deliberations and are now demanding a retrial.

    In a statement, Cohen's lawyers are saying that Judge Rodriguez should have told the jury to concider this a 'general negligence claim' and not a premisis liability claim, which involves different legal standards, and that the judge barred Cohen's lawyers from admitting various pieces of evidence showing just how dangerous Tower of Tower really is. Nevermind the fact that Disney lawyers did show the safety record for the ride and proved it to be totally safe.

      Seriously? There are a LOT of factors that could have happened in the 3 weeks between riding Tower of Terror and the stroke that could have been factors. Plus... he's 80 years old!

        An 80 year old having a stroke 3 weeks after riding TOT is very possible. :botox:

        Must be Disney's fault.

          Maybe I should sue them for the bruise I got on my knee when I got into a ride vehicle too fast and tripped and smacked my knee on the step thing.

            Remember... he was not 80 when he had the stroke. This lawsuit is 8 years old and he had the stroke prior to that.

            Still... it's not enough to get anything out of it. Especially if it happened 3 weeks later.

              I should have sued when I was on indy and the jerky ride sprained my wrist on the bar I chose to hold on to.

              Or when I had a stair pass and splash broke down. they made me walk down all the stairs even after I told them I have problems with stairs. My knee was messed up f or about 3 weeks after.

                  I'm sorry he had a stroke. It's a very serious thing and if Disney was responsible I would want to see them make amends.
                  But three weeks later? When you're in your 70's?
                  I can't see how this can be Disney's fault.

                      i plan to sue disney because 6 years ago i went on splash mountain, and i didn't know i was going to get splashed. because of my damp clothes, 2 weeks later i caught a cold.

                        So, if I have a heart attack 2 weeks from now I could sue Disney, since I did ride TOT, the Matterhorn, Big Thunder R.R., and squeezed in one of those addicting corndogs. What a shame. They really need to put a warning label on those corndogs as that can be quite an addiction!!!

                          I stubbed my toe a week after i got back. I think Splash Mountain might have been involved.....

                            I had a mild stroke after riding the Tea Cups, spinning the wheel as hard as I could, a couple of years ago. But I would never blame Disneyland for it. They have warning signs. It was my own fault. For somebody to sue Disneyland 3 weeks after the ride is way over the top.

                              we live in a world that is "sue" happy and all they want is a quick buck and companies like Disney unfortunately are targets of these kinds of people. Ride at your own risk, you read the warning signs that are posted ALL over the place!
