Jury clears Red Sox in suit brought by woman hurt by foul

The Record (Troy, NY) - - SPORTS -

BOS­TON » A jury has ruled in fa­vor of the Bos­ton Red Sox in a law­suit brought by a woman who says she sus­tained se­vere fa­cial in­juries when she was struck by a foul ball at Fen­way Park.

The jury Wed­nes­day found that the team and prin­ci­pal owner John Henry were not neg­li­gent.

Stephanie Taubin, of Brook­line, sued for $9.5 mil­lion, say­ing she suf­fered fa­cial frac­tures and neu­ro­log­i­cal dam­age from a foul ball in June 2014 while sit­ting in lux­ury seats above and be­hind home plate un­pro­tected by glass or net­ting.

A spokesman says while the Red Sox “re­gret the in­jury” to Taubin “we are pleased with to­day’s out­come.”

Taubin’s at­tor­ney says he’s dis­ap­pointed. He says his client was pay­ing at­ten­tion, but the ball moved so fast she could not avoid it.
