Baldwin Shields v. Ramslee Motors (A-53-18; 081969)

Baldwin Shields v. Ramslee Motors  (A-53-18; 081969)
Ramslee Motors’s lease agreement directly addressed responsibility for maintenance of the property, which includes removal of snow and ice. That duty rested solely with Ramslee Motors, whether based on the lease or common law. Ramslee Motors retained complete control over the premises where plaintiff fell and was exclusively responsible for plaintiff’s injuries. The Court declines to hold the landlord responsible for property over which it had relinquished control.
