Jeff Gordon is a 12-year old boy and his parents are hosting his birthday party at Renaissance Fun Park in Louisville, KY. After eating cake and drinking punch (non-alcoholic), the six boys attending the birthday party are all directed to the racetrack for go-cart racing. On the first race, the battery in Jeff’s car dies, causing his car to stop in the middle of the track. He is hit from behind by another driver and his car is flipped over. Jeff sustains a broken collarbone and sprained wrist. He misses all of basketball season and his family pays the out-of-pocket max of $12,000 in medical bills.

Dale and Tammy Gordon file a lawsuit against Renaissance Fun Park, claiming gross negligence and seeking damages of $12,000 for medical bills and $100,000 for pain and suffering. Renaissance moves for a motion to dismiss on the basis that Dale Gordon signed a release of liability (waiver) releasing all claims by himself and Jeff, his minor child.
