For the assignment, assume that you are an assisting paralegal preparing a personal injury case for trial under your attorneyâ€™s supervision based on the following facts:
John Jones is the father of 10-year old Jimmy, who plays on a park district hockey team. Jones served as an assistant coach for the team this year. Neither the head coach nor Jones receives any pay for their work with the team as they work entirely on a volunteer basis. The Mustangs, as the team is known, were playing the Colts in a match one afternoon at the park district ice rink. During the game, as Jimmy was chasing down the puck, he lost his footing and fell, tripping opposing player Andy as he went down. Andy got up and smacked Jimmy with his hockey stick. John yelled at Andy, and yelled at the referee to do something about the boyâ€™s conduct. Andy was sent to the penalty box. Andyâ€™s father Alan came out of the stands and punched John in the face. John wants to sue Alan, Andy, and the park district, so he comes to your law office to discuss the matter.
Over the course of the class, you will analyze and prepare this case for trial. For all assignments, assume jurisdiction is the state of Texas.

In a separate document, draft ten (10) requests for admissions to the defendants in your clientâ€™s case.
