Richard Umansky fell eight feet from a wooden platform where he was installing a camera in the stadium. He was preparing to cover a football game between Wisconsin and Iowa.
Lawyers for his estate say the platform lacked railings required under federal law. They filed a lawsuit against an athletics official who was in charge of complying with safety regulations.
The District 4 Court of Appeals has overturned a lower court's decision to dismiss the case. It says additional proceedings are needed to determine if the employee can be held responsible.
