“One of the things that is the most upsetting to us is that for the first time in his life, especially in his experiences at Six Flags, they call him out in front of his kids,” says attorney Levi McCathern. “And say your father is not the same as everybody else.”

McCathern says after Bench complained, Six Flags changed its policy for the ride to mandate all riders have “one full arm and one full leg.”


“We repeatedly offered to resolve this with Six Flags for not a dollar. Clint was absolutely adamant when he came to me that this was not about him getting a dollar,” says McCathern. “Unfortunately we are in a position now where we will seek some money to cover the cost and expenses of the lawsuit.”

More than anything, Bench says he just wants to get a message out, “That this doesn’t happen again. That the next time to set a precedent that there is a better solution than what’s in place now,” says Bench.

Bench and his attorney wonder if there are any others who have been discriminated against at Six Flags.

Sharon Parker with Six Flags says no comments are being made on the lawsuit because it’s pending.
