Apparently the plaintiff failed to file some court papers in time, and that let Marshall drop off the lawsuit. Here's the backstory:
At a fraternity party, Helmburg (the plaintiff), claimed Hughes (one of the defendants) became intoxicated and attempted to “shoot bottle rockets out of his anus on the ATO deck.”
When doing so, Hughes startled Helmburg, who then jumped back and fell off of the deck of the fraternity house and was injured, according to the suit. He was lodged between the deck and an air conditioning unit.
Helmburg claimed there was no railing on the deck at the time of the incident, and that the fraternity was negligent in failing to provide a safe deck and that Hughes was at fault for consuming alcohol “which leads to stupid and dangerous activities."
