Case Number:
34206
Case Date:
28-10-2008
Case Issue:

This case arose out of an incident which occurred during a commercial white water rafting trip on the Shenandoah River. Petitioner seek a writ of prohibition challenging enforcement of three of the circuit court's orders by ruling: the maritime law applies; and the assumption of risk in white water rafting cases is not a defense; and consolidating cases with different theories of recovery, different measures of damages, and the preparation for separate trials.
