Jeff Kehl Authors Alert For CLM Magazine
CLM Magazine recently ran Bryce Downey & Lenkov, PLLC income member Jeff Kehl’s news alert on Branscomb v. Walmart in CLM National: May 2021. The monthly feature highlights six state-based briefs that cover important court decisions, trends or legislation.
Jeff’s alert, “Managers Not Liable in Slip, Trips & Falls,” focuses on the Indiana Supreme Court’s recent ruling that store managers cannot be held liable for negligent hiring and retaining store employees or for the existence of allegedly hazardous store conditions. The decision ends a growing trend of naming store managers as defendants in slip/trip and fall cases.
