Both parties were clearly in the wrong but Rife did get physical. I don’t see a way of Rife returning to coach at Richlands without it being a bigger distraction. Legally there are a lot of previous cases like this, involving stuff like pro wrestling. The thing going against Rife is that there is an expectation of safety if you are sitting in the stands. If the fan didn’t spit on him he likely has a good lawsuit. I guess Rife could just change his name to Meta World Peace. As for banning the fan I doubt the board will out of fear of litigation. Tort Law. 4 factors. A duty to ensure no injury. A breach of that duty occurs. An injury occurs. The injury is due to the actions of the person committing the harm. All 4 must be present. In this case, no inury occured, so there is no case. The last one is also up for discussion, EVEN IF an injury would have occured regarding the actions were completely caused by Rife. Why? It was a planned event, a planned incident, and the nitwit was already down close by the bench, and there's an argument that EVEN IF injury would have occured, it wasn't completely due to Rife's actions. There is no injury regardless, so there is no case. A legal case is separate from High School/Tazewell County rules. Those are two entirely separate things, but regarding the legal side, there is ZERO chance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
