O’Malley v. Hospitality Staffing Solutions


(Cal., filed April 10, 2018): Arguing that a residential maintenance worker, asked to check a guest room, does not have a duty to do more than knock on the door of that room, announce his presence, and then open the door and call out again to ascertain if anyone is in the room.  Requiring more than that, would expand the scope and application of legal duty in negligence actions to a determination by the trier- of-fact based solely on “what may have been [in hindsight] reasonably foreseeable.”
