2015 Civil Case Preview

Case Summary:
In 2010, Sydney Park invited classmate Jesse Duran to hang out at the Parks’ home.  Both children were 11 years old.  The Parks keep a gun in their home.  That morning, the gun was discharged, killing one of the children.  The victim’s parents have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the shooter’s parents.

And that is only the first case for the 2015 season!  AMTA will release a second case for the 31st National Championship in Cincinnati, Ohio.  For more information on AMTA’s second case, please read this MEMORANDUM from the Civil Case Committee.

– Released 6/23 on the AMTA website.
