Honeycutt v. Meridian Sports ClubAnnotate this Case
Plaintiff filed suit against Meridian after she was injured in a kickboxing class as a guest at Meridian. The trial court entered summary judgment for Meridian and plaintiff appealed. The court concluded that, based upon the nature of the specific activity resulting in plaintiff's injury and the parties' relationship to that activity, the injury falls squarely within the doctrine of primary assumption of the risk. Further, there is no evidence of gross negligence in this case. The court held that the release bars plaintiff's negligence action because there is no disputed issue of material fact on the issue of gross negligence. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
