07:35 AM ET 08.18 | It's a case of a woman with burned buttocks, literally! A Dallas Cowboys fan is suing the organization and owner Jerry Jones over burns she says she received because of their negligence. Jennelle Carrillo, of Cleburne, received severe burns to her backside after allegedly sitting on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium. "She sat down on this black bench, outside an entrance and unfortunately she suffered third-degree burns as a result of it and had subsequent skin grafts," explained Carrillo's lawyer, Michael Wash. The incident occurred in August of 2010, when Carrillo attended the Blue & Silver scrimmage football game. Temperatures on the day of the game were reportedly more than 100 degrees. Wash said his client didn't stay for the game. "She knew, while she was there at the stadium, that she had received some burns. But she didn't realize how serious they were until she received medical attention." After seeking that medical attention Wash said Carrillo was "hospitalized for about a week [and] had some very serious injuries."

Pryor isn't the answer for Oakland and unfortunately neither is Palmer. The Raider management made a poor decision by trading so many high draft picks for a QB in the downside of his career.

Good question...

My question is why she couldn't guess that a black bench, in Texas, in the heat of the summer, might be hot to the touch.

Idiots and the lawyers who take their cases. That's a match made in hell.

Hopefully, any judge who gets stuck with this case will have more than she does.

I'm sure there's a shyster lawyer out there who'd be happy to make a mockery of the justice system on your behalf, too.

Perhaps there needs to be a new law that requires the loser of personal injury cases to pay for the attorney fees of the person they sue. That might nip things in the bud.
