VeloNews reports that Strava has filed a countersuit vs the family of a man who died in Berkeley, California while allegedly trying to win a new KOM record on the popular cycling website.
The original suit by the family of William Flint came on account of the family’s assertion that Strava assumes “no responsibility” for the safety of its users.
Strava, in targeting Flint’s father of the same name, says that Flint Jr.’s original electronic signature, given when he joined the website, “excludes Strava from responsibility of legal claims or demands.”
I understand Strava needs to defend itself, but it still feels like a harsh move.
once you start suing i don’t know that your greif should protect you from countersuit…
