Pacers will not face damages
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Michigan Court of Appeals has refused to revive a lawsuit by a Palace of Auburn Hills employee against two Indiana Pacers players over her injuries in a 2004 brawl.
The Nov. 19, 2004, brawl involved players and fans at a game between the Pacers and the Detroit Pistons.
Palace worker Julie Socia was hurt when a spectator threw a chair. She said the defendants had a duty not to endanger her, while the defendants say a third party was responsible.
