Boxer wrongful death suit tossed out
by UPI

SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's Supreme Court ruled a dead boxer's sister cannot sue the state's Athletic Commission because the agency is protected by government immunity.

Celeste Moss cannot sue the commission for wrongful death in the July 2003 boxing match that ended up being fatal for her brother, Bradley Rone, 34, The Salt Lake Tribune said.

Rone fought that night hoping to win the $800 prize so he could fund a trip to his mother's funeral in Ohio, the Tribune said. Moss had argued Rone, who'd lost 26 straight bouts, should not have been allowed to enter the ring under regulations by the Utah Athletic Commission, which licenses boxers.
