No Slippery Condition for Slip-n-Slide

Obtained a defense verdict at arbitration on behalf of a tenant renting a single family home. As part of a Memorial Day picnic at his rented home, the defendant set up an inflatable water slip-n-slide in the middle of the back yard for the use and enjoyment of his guests. The plaintiff claimed that a dangerous slippery condition existed on a grassy sloped portion of the property some distance from the slip-n-slide. The plaintiff was walking to the back yard from the side of the house down the sloped grassy area when she slipped and fell fracturing her ankle. The plaintiff asserted that the slippery condition was as a result of water from the slip-n-slide or from the garden hose used in connection with the slip-n-slide. The defense presented several witnesses who testified that they walked in the area of the accident throughout the day, the grass was dry, and no slippery condition existed.
