Porter Scott Wins Motion for Summary Judgment in Dangerous Condition of Public Property Case

Shareholder Will Camy and Associate Megan Boelter successfully defended the City of Gridley against a dangerous condition of public property claim, prevailing on a Motion for Summary Judgment in the Superior Court of California, County of Butte. While playing adult softball, Plaintiff slipped and fell in a soggy and mushy area of grass located in the outfield of the locally owned softball field. The Court held such conditions were an inherent risk to playing softball on a recreational field in the winter. Thus, Plaintiff’s claim was barred by the Primary Assumption of the Risk doctrine and the Court granted Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment.
