Appellate Victory

Casey Arbenz represents a client who was injured by the negligence of a Pierce County employee while riding her bicycle on the Foothills Trail. The trial judge dismissed the case, claiming the county was "immune" from liability because of the "recreational" nature of the Foothills Trail. Mr. Arbenz successfully persuaded The Washington Court of Appeals that the county was not immune. The case has been remanded back to the trial court and Mr. Arbenz plans to vigurously prosecute the case on behalf of his injured client.
