Does Law Bar Claim Against Property Owner For Recreational User's Collision With Man-Made Hazard?
Where Hazard Was Not Introduced to Support Recreational Use of Land
Jeremy Pauley, et al. v. City of Circleville, et al. Pickaway, Case no. 2012-1150
Fourth District Court of Appeals (Pickaway County)
ISSUE: Does a state law that exempts property owners from any duty to keep their premises safe for entry or use by a "recreational user," bar any possibility of civil liability by a property owner for injuries suffered by a recreational user that resulted from a man-made hazard introduced by the owner that does not further or contribute to the property's recreational use?
