Caldwell family sues Forest Service after falling tree at remote campsite injured their young son

A Caldwell family is suing the U.S. Forest Service for more than $1 million, the AP reports, after a large dead tree at a remote campsite fell and injured their then-6-year-old son during a camping trip in 2010. A wind gust blew down the dead tree in the Boise National Forest; the family contends the Forest Service was negligent because it didn’t remove the dead tree and it posed a hazard at the campsite. You can read the AP’s full report here.
