San Bernardino Court Judge Dismisses Action Against Snowline Joint Unified School District

On May 9, 2016, Judge Bryan Foster of the San Bernardino Superior Court dismissed a negligence and dangerous condition of public property action against the Snowline Joint Unified School District. ¬†Specifically, in the case of Astorga v. Snowline Joint Unified Sch. Dist., Case No. CIVDS1402800, plaintiff alleged that he slipped and fell on slippery stadium bleachers during the course of a physical education class. Finding that the plaintiff failed to comply with the jurisdictional requirements of the California Tort Claims Act and waited approximately 2.5-3 years to file a claim for damages, Judge Foster granted the defendant’s motion for summary judgment and dismissed the action in its entirety. ¬†The case was handled and argued by attorney Justin Reade Sarno.
