Halvorson v. Sweetwater County School Dist.Annotate this Case
Plaintiff, an eighth grade student at a junior high school, was injured when she slipped and fell in the locker room of the junior high school. Plaintiff filed suit against the School District claiming that the it had negligently failed to operate and maintain the junior high school building in a reasonably safe condition. The district court entered judgment in favor of the School District. Both parties appealed. Plaintiff challenged the district court’s judgment in favor of the School District, and the School District challenged the court’s denial of its motion for summary judgment. The Supreme Court (1) affirmed the district court’s judgment in favor of the School District, holding that the district court did not err in concluding that Plaintiff failed to carry her burden of proving the existence of a dangerous condition or that the School District did not exercise ordinary care in maintaining the building; and (2) declined to review the court’s ruling on summary judgment.
