A decision was made a couple of weeks ago in the case of a cheerleader from New Jersey who died in 2004 while she was in Hawaii to perform for the Hula Bowl.
According to court testimony, the teenager had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the state’s legal limit for driving when she fell to her death from a hotel balcony in Hawaii. The chaperone of the cheerleader has been ordered by an arbitrator to pay the family and estate of 18-year-old Lauren Crossan nearly $700,000.
