Dodge City Raceway Lawsuit Settled

KSCB News - May 15, 2009 12:00 am

(AP) – Two lawsuits stemming from an August 2007 brawl at the Dodge City Raceway Park have been settled out of court for $25,000.

The city owns the track and was named as a defendant in one suit. The other suit named former racetrack promoter Brad Maxwell and two former guards as defendants.

An attorney whose firm represents the city said this week that the situation was chaotic and that the city was “confident that any similar situations will be avoided in the future.”

The settlement was reached earlier this month.

Two men reportedly were assaulted during the brawl that involved two raceway security guards.

Maxwell was accused of saying that he could not control the guards when asked to stop the attack. He also was accused of not calling police.
