Massachusetts Superior Court Dismisses Wrongful Death Claims Against Boston Ballet, Holmes
Boston Ballet Press Department
(BOSTON, Mass.) -- On Friday March 9, 2001, the Massachusetts Superior Court entered a judgement dismissing the wrongful death lawsuit brought by Patricia Harrington against Boston Ballet. Harrington filed the suit last July, three years after the death of her daughter Heidi Guenther, who was a Boston Ballet corps de ballet dancer.
Boston Ballet attorney Sue McQuay, of Sullivan Weinstein & McQuay, stated that Superior Court Justice Elizabeth M. Fahey fully dismissed each of the six counts, finding "no combination of facts" that could support Harrington's claims. McQuay says Judge Fahey also ordered that defendants Boston Ballet and Artistic Director Anna-Marie Holmes should recover their costs in defending the suit.
"This case is now over," McQuay said. "No credence was given by the Court to
the plaintiff's claims, and we fully expect no further action will be taken
on this matter."
