Supreme Court to Consider Dairy Farm Injury Case

Tools

By Rachel Begle

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether the owners of a dairy farm can be sued by an adult chaperone who was injured during a kindergarten class trip.

The court said Monday it would hear the case Oct. 11 at Waterloo West High School.

Justices will be asked to decide whether a lawsuit filed by Kimberly Sallee is barred by a law that gives immunity to landowners who open their property to others for recreational purposes.

Sallee fell through the floor of the hay loft and onto the barn below when she was chaperoning a trip of her daughter's class from Sacred Heart School in Oelwein to the farm owned by the Stewart family.

A district judge has dismissed the claims, and Sallee is asking they be reinstated.
