Case Summary:
“The opening game of the 2013 season at Collegiate Stadium in Syracuse, New York was a rivalry match with record attendance. After the game, a violent assault on fan Mark Robinson takes place in the parking lot of the stadium during an altercation with other spectators Trent Vincent and Scott Shatzle. Stadium personnel had received several complaints about Vincent and Shatzle’s belligerence and excessive drinking during the event, with at least one verbal warning taking place. Security was still traveling to the parking lot during the short altercation. Vincent and Shatzle were arrested, however, Robinson, is suing the Stadium and Collegiate University, claiming they failed to provide proper security during the incident. Dismissal of these charges was denied by Superior Court, and the event has now moved into the national spotlight considering the popularity of the collegiate teams and brutal nature of the attack. The case is now poised for a jury trial before the Honorable Dana Alden Fox, J.S.C.”
