Parties set schedule in suit over Boy Scout camp accident; Hylla finds motion to compel moot
The parties in a suit filed against the Lewis & Clark Council of the Boys Scouts of America have set the path to the suit's May 2012 trial.
Madison County Circuit Judge David Hylla signed a scheduling order in the suit filed by John and Brenda Gremli May 25.
The move comes five days after Hylla found a motion to compel filed by the Boy Scouts council moot.
The Gremlis allege that the defendants failed to inspect and remove rotting trees from a boy scout came in Godfrey.
The Gremlis were invited onto the property camp.
A tree fell on John Gremli's tent and caused him several injuries including a leg injury that required amputation, according to the plaintiff's complaint.
The Gremlis are seeking damages in excess of $150,000 and other relief.
The defendants deny the claims.
The Lewis & Clark Council had filed a motion to compel against the Gremlis alleging the couple had not complied with discovery requests.
According to a May 20 entry in the suit's docket sheet, the plaintiffs turned over the requested information at a hearing that date, making the issue moot.
According to the May 25 scheduling order, the parties will complete discovery in the suit by March 20, 2012.
A pre-trial date will then be determined.
The suit is set for trial May 21, 2012 at 9 a.m.
Robert Gregory represents the plaintiffs.
James Craney leads the defense.
The case is Madison case number 11-L-021.
