Suit alleges patron died from hot tub at Alton fitness center

By The Madison County Record | Aug 24, 2016

EDWARDSVILLE — An estate administrator is suing an Alton fitness center, alleging its negligence caused the death of a relative.

Julie Stamper, special administrator of the estate of Louis Stamper, filed a lawsuit Aug. 22 in Madison County Circuit Court against Metro Sports Inc. - Twin River Services Ltd., alleging breach of duty of ordinary care in the operation of its business.

According to the complaint, on Nov. 30, 2015, Louis Stamper was at the defendant's facility in Alton, using its hot tub/jacuzzi. The suit says excessive water temperature caused Stamper to sustain internal and external injuries that resulted in his death. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to properly maintain its hot tub/jacuzzi, failed to have adequate staff on duty and failed to warn patrons of the excessive hot temperature of the water.

Julie Stamper seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs of suit and whatever remedies are deemed appropriate. She is represented by attorney Gregory M. Tobin of Pratt & Tobin PC in East Alton.
