NO LIABILITY FOR FERAL ANIMALS

 

On March 4, Senior Shareholder James Olson obtained summary judgment on a claim that a business owner was liable for injuries to a window washer who claimed pigeons caused him to fall from a a ladder sustaining injuries.  The District Court agreed with Mr. Olson that the pigeons were feral animals, that the owner had no control over animals, and no liability existed on the part of the owner.
