Dismissal of Albert Pike suit upheld

Dismissal of Albert Pike suit upheld

The federal 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the dismissal of a civil lawsuit by a federal judge in Texarkana stemming from the deaths of 20 campers who lost their lives at Albert Pike Recreation Area during a June 2010 flood. Like U.S. District Judge Susan Hickey in the Texarkana Division of the Western District of Arkansas, the 8th Circuit ruled that the Arkansas Recreational Use Statute protects the government from liability for the deaths.
