Transcript: Closing Argument of Defendant Shaun Boyer v. California State University, Gould CV 18-2018 Maryjane Hong Primary Assumption of Risk 1. The Wet Field - not a concealed condition! Primary Assumption of Risk 2. The Fence - Why play beside it? HUGE field! - Heavily Raining day - The Sprinkler California Civil Jury Instructions (CACI) OPEN & OBVIOUS "If an unsafe condition of the property is so obvious that a person could reasonably be expected to observe it, then the [owner/lessor/occupier/one who controls the property] does not have to warn others about the dangerous condition." 1004. Obviously Unsafe Conditions Contractual Assumption of Risk - Liability Waiver Contractual Assumption of Risk Liability Wavier Liability Waiver 1. Signature - Plaintiff Shaun Boyer 2. Date - August 31, 2022 - before the incident (Nov. 20, 2022) 3. Content: understand the risks and dangers understand the right to be gave up for the participation understand the release applies to personal injury understand the not only University, but also including its intramural spikeball club is released from liability voluntarily give the University a complete release from any and all liability for any injury or damage during the participation in an intramural sport California Civil Jury Instructions (CACI) California Civil Jury Instructions (CACI) 451. Affirmative Defense—Contractual Assumption of Risk "[Name of defendant] claims that [name of plaintiff] may not recover any damages because [he/she] agreed before the incident that [he/she] would not hold [name of defendant] responsible for any damages. If [name of defendant] proves that there was such an agreement and that it applies to [name of plaintiff]’s claim, then [name of defendant] is not responsible for [name of plaintiff]’s harm." FORESEEABILITY & UNFORESEEABILITY: Foreseeability & Unforseeability - The unsafety condition is foreseeable: Heavily rainy day --- MUDDY! The wet field --- NOT IN A GOOD CONDITION - The weather of raining per se is unforeseeable - The holding of spikeball activity is unforeseeable: Informal tournament Not a school essential event Using field without a permission Not liable for plaintiff’s injury! NO foreseeability of plaintiff playing spikeball in such an obvious unsafe condition without defendant CSUG’s permission. CONCLUSION Conclusion CSUG is nonnegligent CSUG will be found negligent in the use or maintenance of the property: The Burden of Proof 3. CSUG failed to repair the condition, protect against harm from the condition, or give adequate warning of the condition. HOWEVER, I would prove: IF Plaintiff could prove: 1. The condition on the property created harm is OPEN and OBVIOUS 1. A condition on the property created an unreasonable risk of harm; 2. CSUG knew or should have known about the risk; 2. Plaintiff knew or should have known about the risk 3. CSUG doesn't have a duty of giving the warning sign of obviously unsafe condition Reptile Theory - ATTENTION Reptile Theory Improper use of Reptile Theory Irrelevant, excluded, prejudicial Merely to appeal and inflame the emotions of Jury and create bias Stop the other side from making unfair, prejudicial arguments Prohibited by law

Closing Argument

Transcript: Brake Drums that have reached the maximum service diameter are more susceptible to rising heat because there are less drum mass available to absorb the heat Closing Argument As stated in the Highway Accident Report, they believe that the mechanic lacked the proper training in brake maintenance and inspections, did not detect the poorly adjusted or inoperative brakes on the trailer, and did not perform recommended maintenance Brake shoe lining thickness and brake drum diameters should be adjusted regularly to ensure that each part of the brake pad is taking a proportionate amount of the wear of stopping the vehicle. The Highway Accident Report stated that the brake shoe lining on the rig was in compliance with standards, with the exception of the Fifth Wheel on the right. The brake drum diameters were also measured and none exceeded Manufacterer's maximum thickness, they were all approaching it. The First and Fourth tire on the right, as well as, The Fifth on the left exhibited rust The Tractor Trailer Involved In Our Accident Was Registering A Temperature Of Over 800 Degrees AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF BRAKES ON EXIT RAMP Ace Trucking Is At Fault For Accident When Investigators Tested Tractor Trailer's Emergency Brake, Only The Fifth Wheel On The Right Locked, The Fourth Wheel On The Right And The Fifth Wheel On The Left Were Free Rolling According to the Highway Accident Report, a dust cover protecting the brake drums and springs would have reduced the chance of corrosion to the springs and drums, prolonging the life of the brake parts and the life of the brakes Tractor Trailer Air Brake Dust Covers Conclusion From Highway Accident Report Brakes Were Improperly Maintained Conclusion Emergency Brake HOW TO LOWER TEMPERATURE? Based on the Inspection conducted by the Missouri Division of Motor Vehicles and Railroad Safety after the accident, the truck would have received a rating of a 4 instead of a satisfactory score After Accident Inspection Mechanic's Training The National Transportation Safety Board Determines That The Probable Cause Of The Accident Was The Truck Driver's Inability To Stop The Tractor Semi-Trailer At The Stop Sign At The Bottom Of The Ramp Due To The Reduced Braking Efficiency Of The Truck's Brakes, Which Had Been Poorly Maintained And Inadequately Inspected. Contributing To The School Bus Passenger's Injuries During The Side Impact Were Incomplete Compartmentalization and Lack Of Energy Absorbing Material On Interior Surfaces EFFECTS OF IMPROPERLY MAINTAINED BRAKES State Police Investigators Did An Air Brake Inspection 4 Weeks After The Accident, Stopping The Trailer At Speeds Of 20 And 40 MPH, Only The Brakes On Fourth Axle Left Side And Fifth Axle Right Side Locked, The Other Wheels Were Free Rolling With Brakes Fully Applied PROPERLY MAINTAINED EMERGENCY BRAKES
