Clarifying Terms Related To Landowner Liability

Concerning clarifying certain terms as the terms relate to a landowner's liability.
2022 Regular Session
Civil Law
Bill Summary

The bill clarifies the meaning of terms related to landowner liability and declares that the Colorado court of appeals and supreme court decisions in Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood, Inc. v. Wagner should not be relied upon to the extent that those decisions determined:

  • The foreseeability of third-party criminal conduct based upon whether the goods or services offered by a landowner are controversial; and
  • That a landowner could be held liable as a substantial factor in causing harm without considering whether a third-party criminal act was the predominant cause of that harm.
    (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
