Weather and a slip and fall at school

Roach Walker sued the Gary schools  over her slip and fall on school property. At trial, the Lake Superior Court rejected the school corporation’s motion for a directed verdict on grounds that it was entitled to immunity under the Indiana Tort Claims Act because the fall was caused by a temporary condition on a public thoroughfare resulting from weather. The Court of Appeals affirmed the verdict in favor of the plaintiff – a decision that’s been vacated by the Supreme Court’s grant of transfer. Vacated ruling below: Gary Cmty. Sch. Corp. v. Roach-Walker, No. 45A05-0805-CV-275 (Ind. Ct. App. Dec. 31, 2008).
