A stuntman injured after a 25-foot fall during a February 2012 motocross bike act at the Shrine Circus at The Dow Event Center has filed a lawsuit against circus organizers and Saginaw County.
Josh Headford in July filed the complaint in Saginaw County Circuit Court, claiming that Elf Khurafeh Shrine Temple, event venue management group SMG, and the county, among other entities, were careless and failed to protect him during his Feb. 5 jump at the circus.
Headford, who according to the lawsuit “shattered” his right elbow and right femur, suffered multiple rib fractures, and fractured his scapula and right wrist in the fall, is seeking in excess of $25,000 from the entities — a figure required to have the case placed in Circuit Court.
The case, assigned to Saginaw County Circuit Judge Darnell Jackson, has had dozens of filings since Headford first filed the lawsuit. A case evaluation is to be scheduled after June 21.
