Testimony begins in civil trial against Cliffs Resort

Testimony began Friday in the civil trial against The Cliffs Resort in Pismo Beach.

The family of Tricia Rittger is suing the owners of the popular resort over her death.

Rittger, who was a KSBY employee, was hit and killed while crossing the street in front of The Cliffs back in 2011.

Her family claims the resort acted negligently by not putting up a sign barring her from parking in a lot meant for employees only.

In opening statements Thursday, attorneys representing The Cliffs said Rittger was distracted as she was walking across the street because she was texting at the time.

The trial is expected to last up to six weeks.
