Study of Camp Randall Stampede

One of the highlights of each LLAW (Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin) Newsletter is Cindy May’s Recommended Readings list. I thought that the following article from the Summer 2005 edition list looked particularly interesting.

Fried, Gil and Metchick, Robert. “Camp Randall Memorial Stadium Case Study: University of Wisconsin, October 30, 1993.” Journal of Legal Aspects of Sport 15:139-176 (Winter 2005)
In 1993 fans rushed the field at the end of a football game in Camp Randall, resulting in many injuries and lawsuits. This case study analyzes data associated with the incident to explore whether it could have been avoided if different decisions had been made and different strategies employed.
