Somerset flag football stabbing lawsuit settled

November 4, 2013

SOMERSET, Mass. (AP) — A Fall River man stabbed during a brawl between two adult flag football teams has reached a $325,000 settlement with the indoor sports facility in Somerset that hosted the game.

Brian Cunha, a lawyer for James Hilario, announced the settlement last week.

Hilario alleged in his suit against the Teamworks indoor facility that management was negligent for allowing the June 2010 attack to happen. Cunha tells the Herald News (http://bit.ly/1b6CK5U ) that members of the other team allegedly made a series of violent threats against Hilario’s team. Those threats were reported to Teamworks management, which took no action.

Teamworks management had no comment.

A Taunton man was sentenced in April 2011 to up to six years in prison for stabbing Hilario and another man.
