Government Negligence: Forest Service & Camp Failures Allow Black Bear Mauling (More than $2,500,000 Recovered)

We represented a teenage girl who was mauled by a black bear while attending a 4-H camp on Mt. Lemmon, just outside of Tucson. We proved that the defendants failed to follow their own rules and failed to properly manage the food and trash management at the camp. We also proved that the defendants brought this black bear to Mt. Lemmon and knew that it was a danger to the campers, yet did nothing. The U.S. Forest Service settled the case for $2,500,000. We reached confidential settlements with other defendants.
