Ferranti v. City of Elizabeth, No. A-4707-17T2 (May 22, 2019)

Appellant Division affirmed granting of summary judgment based on New Jersey Tort Claims Act.

The plaintiff left work when a snow storm caused an emergency early closing. She slipped on accumulated ice and snow that was un-shoveled and unsalted. The defendant was granted summary judgment because determining where to begin shoveling snow and salting is a discretionary action. Moreover, none of the actions or inactions of the defendant were palpably unreasonable.
