Trial called in Lake George tour boat tragedy

Albany, New York - March 9, 2010

A federal judge has called a trial to determine whether another boat's wake contributed to a deadly tour boat accident on Lake George.

In 2005 the Ethan Allen capsized, killing 20 elderly passengers from the Midwest. The Lake George Steamboat Company filed a request asking a judge to dismiss liability claims that its tour boat's wake contributed to the accident. On Monday the judge refused, setting a trial for June 10.

Claims against the boat owner, operator and tour organizer have been settled.
