Court allows suit by parent injured at soccer tourney

BY KATHY BARRETT CARTER

A soccer mom who her hurt shoulder after tripping over a cooler at a concession area can sue the nonprofit athletic association that organized a tournament, a state appeals court ruled yesterday. While state law protects youth groups from lawsuits by spectators, the court said Karin Roberts of Winslow Township, Camden County, may sue the Timber Birch- Broadmoor Athletic Association because she says she was a volunteer who kept score and provided first aid for kids.
