WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. — A dispute between siblings over a zip line injury is returning to court in suburban Detroit.
The Michigan Supreme Court on Friday revived a lawsuit by Doreen Rott, who had knee surgery after zip lining in brother Arthur Rott’s yard in Oakland County.
The court said zip lines aren’t covered by a Michigan recreation law that gives some legal protection to property owners if someone is injured.
A person on a zip line wears a harness and flies through the air on a cable. Doreen Rott touched the ground before the end of her ride, injuring her knee.
