Trespasser Liability Reform: SB 202 (2012)
Codifies existing law by providing that landowners immunity from liability
Codifies existing law by providing that landowners immunity from liability for injuries to trespassers. Establishes that a possessor of land does not owe a duty of care to a trespasser, except for cases when the land possessor knows of the trespasser’s presence, maintains certain types of artificial conditions on the premise, or in certain instances involving child trespassers.
