121 So. 3d 1097 (Fla. 5th DCA 2013)

This case involves the tragic death of Ereck Plancher, a 19 year old football player at the University of Central Florida who was killed by the negligence of the football staff. The appeal involved two primary issues, one involving a “release” that UCFAA claimed absolved them from all liability, and the other concerning whether UCFAA was entitled to sovereign immunity. The Fifth District ruled in Plancher’s favor on the release issue, but nevertheless held that the UCFAA was entitled to sovereign immunity.
