Red Sox lawsuit


"The closer the fan is to the action on the field, the greater the risk."

MBA Chief Legal Counsel and Chief Operating Officer Martin W. Healy, Boston Herald, August 29

Healy was quoted in a story about a recent lawsuit filed in Suffolk Superior Court against Red Sox owner John Henry involving a fan who was injured by a foul ball while sitting in the EMC Club during a game at Fenway Park in 2014. The complaint says the injury resulted from renovations to the park which removed protective glass from the area.
