Drowning Death Case against the City of Sioux Falls moves forward

I was actually surprised it is moving forward to trial;

A federal district court finds that the case against the City of Sioux Falls in the drowning death of an Iowa girl can go forward.

Judge Karen Schreier found that the plaintiff, Courtney Jayne, representing her deceased minor daughter Maggie Zaiger, had met their burden to survive the City’s motion for summary judgment.

The little girl fell into the Big Sioux River at Falls Park while on an outing with her family. 

As I understand it, the Public Assurance Alliance is handling the case for the city.

Schreier is the judge and Brendan is the plaintiff’s attorney. It’s a marriage made in heaven.
