Arguments in Raft Accident Begin

A jury in Cheyenne must decide whether a 2006 rafting accident that killed three people on the Snake River was strictly a tragic accident or the result of a private company’s negligence. Lawyers gave opening statements Tuesday in a federal lawsuit that relatives of the three victims as well as some other raft passengers have filed against Grand Teton Lodge Co. Mel Orchard, lawyer for the plaintiffs, told the jury the company was responsible for underplaying the danger of river rafting to encourage people to book the trip.
