N.J. JUSTICES GRAPPLE WITH EXTENDING SIDEWALK DUTY TO CONDO ASSOCIATIONS

N.J. Law Journal reports:

The New Jersey Supreme Court was asked Tuesday to extend to condominium associations the law on maintaining snow-free walkways. Richard Luchejko injured his leg and ankle when he slipped on an icy sidewalk in Hoboken. The sidewalk was adjacent to a condo complex, governed by the Skyline Condominium Association, which maintains the complex’s public areas. Luchejko sued the association, two contractors and Hoboken for failing to enforce its ordinance requiring sidewalks to be cleared within six hours of a snowfall. A trial court dismissed on summary judgment, finding that Hoboken was shielded by the Tort Claims Act and that the duty to clear sidewalks did not extend to nonprofit condominium associations. The Appellate Division affirmed.
