On February 17, 2021, Bradshaw attorney Blake R. Hanson obtained a summary judgment ruling dismissing a lawsuit against an area non-profit that sponsored pony rides as part of a domesticated animal activity. The opposing party brought a negligence claim against the defendant, alleging the defendant was liable for injuries sustained where plaintiff claimed she was trampled by a pony named Chester. Under Iowa Code §673 (known as the “domesticated animal activity” statute), the Court accepted defendant’s argument that the statute insulated defendant from all liability because defendant qualified as a sponsor, had no “interest” in the property where the activity took place, and was not required to place a warning sign on the property.
