Killington, N.J. man settle lawsuit

Killington Resort and a man who sued the ski area after he broke his leg there in 2009  have settled the case out of court.

Alfred Rocks of Egg Harbor, N.J., sued the resort in 2010 alleging the resort failed to maintain the trail “Ovation” in a “reasonably safe condition,” resulting in his fall and then, further injured him when a first aid toboggan carrying him down the mountain flipped over, causing more injuries.

A clerk at the Burlington court said the parties settled the case out of court. The court was notified of the parties’ decision to do so mid-morning Monday.

The trial began Friday in federal court in Burlington and ended Monday in Rutland.
