Johnson, Laurence v. Systems XT, Inc.
Mar 27, 2019 – California Court of Appeal, Second District
On Wednesday, March 27, 2019, the California Court of Appeal, Second District, published its Opinion affirming the trial court’s order granting summary judgment on behalf of Yukevich Cavanaugh client, Systems, XT. Yukevich Cavanaugh attorneys argued on summary judgment that Systems XT, as the prime contractor at a jobsite, did not owe a duty to the plaintiff, and pursuant to the Privette Doctrine was not subject to liability for plaintiff’s injuries at the construction site. Plaintiff was an employee of another contractor who had no contractual relationship with Systems XT. Plaintiff appealed the trial court’s ruling. After briefing and oral arguments by Yukevich Cavanaugh attorneys, the Court of Appeal’s panel of three justices unanimously affirmed.
