Good discussion about sports releases. (Via Flutterby.) Matthew Lerner would direct us to General Obligations Law § 5-326 as a starting point, then on to Tedesco v. Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority (2 Dept. 1998) 250 A.D.2d 758, 673 N.Y.S.2d 181 (Verrazano Narrows Bridge, on which bicyclist sustained injury while participating in bicycle tour, is not "place of amusement or recreation," for purposes of statute invalidating contracts exempting places of amusement from liability, and thus, statute did not invalidate bicyclist's contractual release of bridge and tunnel authority from liability for injuries sustained).
