Summary Judgment for U-Haul Co.

Harlan Watkins and Jonathan Blute obtained summary judgment for U-Haul Co. of California and its local dealer in Wilson v. U-Haul Co. of California, et al., Humboldt County Superior Court case no. DR060289. Plaintiff sustained injuries after a trip-and-fall accident in a parking lot located next to a local U-Haul dealership in Fortuna, California. U-Haul and its dealer occasionally parked U-Haul trailers in the neighboring lot. Mr. Watkins and Mr. Blute argued that under California premises liability law, neither U-Haul nor its local dealer controlled the parking lot and therefore neither were responsible for protecting the public from dangerous conditions therein.
