Chicago resident J.C. Trotter died earlier this summer in a drowning accident. Trotter and his party were fishing on a river that had been declared too dangerous for public use in the aftermath of storms and flooding. Trotter’s estate has claimed that the boat shop that rented a fishing boat to the party is negligent, as shop personnel did not inform the men that boating and swimming had been temporarily suspended in the area. The lawsuit asks for at least $50,000 in damages.
