Hockey spectators beware! The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled in a recent case that a hockey venue has no duty to warn or protect spectators of danger of injury from errant hockey pucks. The court stated that an injured spectator assumed the risk of her injury because she was seated in the stands, six or seven rows from the ice, above the protective plexiglass and outside the area protected by netting. So, next time you go to a hockey game and sit in the “cheap seats”, beware, because you never know what the “puck” might happen.
