SEA ISLE CITY COULD FACE LAWSUIT IN HOTTENSTEIN DEATH

A lawsuit might be coming against Sea Isle City in a wrongful-death suit. The Press of Atlantic City reports that a federal court ruled that the family could file a lawsuit regarding Tracy Hottenstein’s death. She was in town for the city’s annual Polar Bear Plunge. Hottenstein left a bar around 2:15 a.m. and was found later in the morning dead. The report says that the family would like to go after the city for not trying to revive their daughter. The cause of death was ruled as hypothermia.
