Mean Lawyers Suck commented on Family Flicks
The problem with the contract has nothing to do with liability or insurance. 90% of the actual liability is shielded by the partcipation agreement, not the member agreement. It's silly to say that members may not go places outdoors with other members, but the big problem is the non-compete...

I don't know what the big deal with this contract is. (A) OASC takes people out camping in the middle of the woods, takes people skiing, goes kayaking, rafting, etc... I'm sure that's an insurance nightmare. I'm sure Matt pays through the nose for insurance, and I'm sure Matt wouldn't be so...

I've seen comments from Don Vale in several newspapers in which he implies the recommendations he has submitted to the superintendent are endorsed by everyone on his committee. The truth is that parents and teachers on the committee are dead set against the changes, but he never mentions that. This...

To be clear, the Charlottesville Sports & Social Club *does* require members to sign a waiver form, but not a contract. All the waiver form does is waive liability for injuries sustained during the course of play of the sport, and affirms you carry insurance. We also carry a $1m liability...
