Magic Mountain wins case over racial comments

A Los Angeles jury has found that Six Flags Magic Mountain was not liable for racial comments on a video tape shot then sold to an African-American man riding an up-charge attraction. The park said that the comments could have been made by anyone within earshot of the camera.

Well, I'm not sure. But who really knows? Not me.

what's with this country and lawsuites?  I don't think its right for people to verbally rip others apart, but this whole thing sounds like the guy is just looking for some extra cash.

Wow, I don't even remember this suit going to trial. If the situation was what the park described, that anyone around the camera operator could have said it, I don't know how he thought he had a case. At CP I've noticed camera people all around VertiGo, and who is behind them? Other members of the public.

i'm glad he didn't win...what a waste of time. But you should also look at it from his point of view...what if it really was said by a worker.
