Yesterday Judge Doyle in the District Court of Dawson County issued summary judgment to the Lexington Public Schools finding the school not liable for injuries to one of its students. The Lexington Public Schools was represented by Jeanelle Lust of the Knudsen Law Firm.

The student alleged that she fell into a manhole on Lexington Public School’s property while participating in an out-door gym class. The school maintained throughout the litigation that it did not know of any defects or problems with the manhole (or in fact that a manhole was even on its property). Judge Doyle agreed and dismissed the plaintiff’s case.
