Hearing Set in Lawsuit over Walt Worker's Death

A hearing is scheduled in a lawsuit filed against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts by the family of an employee who died while working on an Animal Kingdom ride in 2011. The family of Russell Roscoe filed the suit in Orange County Circuit Court in 2012. Roscoe, a 52-year-old attractions mechanic, died in 2011 after a ride vehicle struck him while performed maintenance on Primeval Whirl. Roscoe and other workers were wet testing the ride in which some employees spray water from the top of the lift platform while others inspect systems such as brakes when the accident occurred. Disney has asked for claims to be dismissed, saying Roscoe's family is already entitled to benefits under workers compensation and that employer immunity from lawsuits is a protection under that system. The plaintiff is arguing that immunity does not apply because Disney knew the dangers involved with testing the ride, but that danger was not apparent to Roscoe and Disney misrepresented it. Disney is disputing those claims.
