There has been an unusual twist in the litigation arising out of the line of duty death of Fire Captain Cory Barr, who was killed in a natural gas explosion in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin last July. As we reported last December, Captain Barr’s widow, Abby, filed suit against four companies alleged to have contributed to the blast.
Abby is now being sued by Ski and Ski LLC, who sold the Barrs a bar, which was subsequently renamed The Barr House. The Barr House was destroyed by the gas explosion that killed Captain Barr. According to the suit, the Barrs still owe Ski and Ski $138,000 from the original purchase in 2016.
The suit was filed April 12, 2019 in Dane County Circuit Court. A copy of the complaint is not available. Here is more on the suit.
