A Judge in Montana has decided PADI must face a Jury to decide if it is vicariously liable for the tragic and highly preventable death of SCUBA diver Linnea Mills. The Professional Association of Diving Instructors Worldwide Corporation is denying vicarious responsibility for the November 2020 death of Linnea Mills, according to a document filed April 4 in Missoula County District Court.
PADI claim that all of their Instructor’s are held to a high standard and mointored by PADI, but Instructors are not ‘agents’ of PADI… well, which is it? Because you can’t have it both ways, PADI! Either you are responsible for the oversight of your Instructors, you have control over them, which means they are agents of PADI, or you admit you have no quality assurance and no control over who teaches PADI programs.
