cheerleaders_photo_group_nyreblog_com_.JPGCarin Lomonico was injured when one of her colleagues fell on her during a stunt cheerleading performance.

Carin blamed the incident on the school's failure to properly instruct or supervise the youngsters and to provide protective floor mats.

While the school thought Carin's claims weren't trial worthy, the Nassau County Supreme Court didn't agree and refused to end the litigation.

Since she was familiar with the dangers associated with the maneuvers performed, and because she couldn't show she had been exposed to any hidden or "unreasonably increased" risks, the Appellate Division, Second Department, reversed and dismissed Carin's case.

Can you hear that jeer?
