Local radio personality Adam Davis and station WRVW-107.5 The River have parted ways in the wake of a lawsuit filed by Davis against the Nashville Predators, radio industry news outlet AllAccess reported yesterday.
Davis, better known as Intern Adam, sued the Predators in August, claiming they were responsible for a broken ankle he sustained during a “human hockey puck” stunt. According to AllAccess, Davis hasn't been on the radio in the nine weeks since he filed the lawsuit.
“It's been a very emotional nine weeks being in limbo and not knowing my future,” Davis told AllAccess. “But now it's certain that I can find a microphone somewhere else, be it in Nashville or wherever, and continue to bring the entertainment that Intern Adam has provided for years.”
The Predators challenged Davis's lawsuit, claiming he failed to take “reasonable and ordinary care” for his safety during the stunt. The Predators included a jury demand in their response to the lawsuit.
No further filings have taken place since the Predators' response.
