Woman sues Church, former bishop over zip line injuries

A Utah County woman is suing the LDS Church and her former bishop for injuries she sustained when she fell from a zip line in her bishop's backyard.

In a lawsuit filed in 3rd District Court, Martha Miller claims that on Sept. 22, 2008, she attended an activity for members of her BYU singles ward at the home of her bishop, Kyrt Nay. Other ward members were taking turns on the zip line in the backyard and encouraged Miller to try it.
