Cases involving school districts’ liability are on the rise across the country. The Arizona Supreme Court recently drew a clearer line for future litigants, narrowing the duties of schools. In a case where a high school student killed his classmate off-campus, the Court held that there was no duty because students had safely left the school’s control.
The Arizona Court of Appeals recently confirmed a trial court’s ruling and granted defendant’s motion to set aside for noncompliance with Ariz. R. Civ. P. 55(a)(2)(D)— failure to provide notice to a company’s attorney.
