Dave Root Obtains Summary Judgment in Negligence Suit

Dave Root obtained summary judgment on behalf of their client, who served as the volunteer president of the Board of Directors of non-profit corporation, in a negligence suit resulting from the death of a minor.  The defense moved for summary judgment on the grounds that their client could not be liable under any tort theory because she was not directly involved in and did not instruct anyone to undertake the allegedly tortious conduct.  The defense also argued that there was no proximate cause between the allegedly tortious conduct and the death.  The Court agreed and granted summary judgment on those grounds.
