A lawsuit filed by a family against a Lake Tahoe ski resort and other companies over the death of a man who fell from a chairlift has been settled, although financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Sacramento Bee reported that the family of 51-year-old Mark Dickson settled the wrongful death suit in September in El Dorado Superior Court. They had sought $15 million in a settlement conference earlier this year.
The lawsuit says Dickson was killed in August 20009 after falling from Heavenly’s chairlift, which became entangled with a rope retrieval line from the zip line ride.
