Brett v. Great American Recreation, Inc., 144 N.J. 479, 677 A.2d 705 (1996)
Practice Areas: General Liability, Retail, Hotel and Restaurant/Hospitality Industry Litigation
Our law firm represented the owner of a condominium abutting the Great Gorge Ski Facility. Suit had been filed on behalf of several college students who were injured while tobogganing at the ski slope. Damages were awarded in excess of 2.5 million dollars. Our law firm was successful in securing an Order for Summary Judgment on the basis that the condominium owner had no duty to warn the guests not to toboggan on the ski slope. The Appellate Division affirmed this ruling in a reported decision, as well as the verdicts against the ski slope owner and operator.
