Bouchard wins lawsuit against USA tennis body

Eugenie Bouchard leaves Brooklyn Federal Court on Wednesday. Bouchard is suing the USTA after she fell and hit her head at the U.S. Open in 2015

Bouchard, once ranked No. 5 in the world and a Wimbledon finalist in 2014, testified it was the USTA's negligence that led to her slip and fall and the resulting injuries.

"I feel vindicated that I got the verdict yesterday", Bouchard said.

Bouchard, a former world No.5 and Wimbledon finalist, had sued United States tennis's governing body after she slipped and fell in a training room.

Confrontation between US Legislators and the NRA on Arms Control
The gunman in Florida and multiple other mass shooters have used some variation of a semi-automatic rifle like the AR-15. In the session, Trump pitched the idea of arming teachers in schools, an idea that was panned by most of the guests.

Eugenie Bouchard and the U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) have reached settlement in the locker-room lawsuit filed by the Canadian tennis sensation in 2015.

A NY jury decided on Thursday that USTA should pay 75 per cent of the damages owed to Bouchard but also found the tennis player bore contributory negligence of 25 per cent. The terms weren't immediately disclosed.

The USTA had argued that Bouchard should have known the darkened room was being cleaned at 11 pm.

Is McDonald's Szechuan Sauce returning?
The company noted it would only be "while supplies last (which this time around, we hope is a while)". They vowed to bring back the sauce sometime this winter, and now we know exactly when we can get it.

Bouchard's lawyers claim that in addition to forcing her out of the U.S. Open, the injury has contributed to her recent career struggles.

The 23-year-old told the jury on Wednesday that she took two steps into the training room after a mixed doubles match before slipping on the wet floor, falling and hitting her head on the tile floor. She recalled being in "shock" as she found herself "staring at the ceiling".

She suffered concussion and had to withdraw from the Grand Slam tournament before her fourth round singles match against eventual runner-up Roberta Vinci of Italy. She is now ranked 116th, well outside the ranking cut off for the main draw, but said she was hoping to receive a wild card.

An FIR has actually been filed in the case and the police have added an additional charge of attempt to murder. Shah said there were 19 scams and 22 political murders associated with the Congress government.

Bouchard was also still able to drum up endorsement money, in large part due to her aggressive social media presence, he said.
