BEND, OR -- Oregon's Supreme court ruled a snowboarder injured on Mount Bachelor can pursue a lawsuit against the resort, despite liability waivers.  Myles Bagley was 18 when he was paralyzed in an accident at mt. Bachelor in 2006.  Two years later, a $21.5-million lawsuit against the resort was thrown out by a Deschutes County judge, citing the waiver Bagley signed when he bought his season pass, and another on the back of his ticket.

 

Yesterday's supreme court decision sends the case back to the local court where Deschutes County jurors could decide whether Mt. Bachelor was negligent in designing, building and maintaining the jump where Bagley was injured.
