Team Monaghan Leahy participated in Mary’s Walk once again this year, helping raise funds that are directed to the Maine Cancer Foundation. The Walk was started in memory of Matt Libby’s mother Mary who passed away from Burkitt’s Lymphoma in 1997. The Walk has raised over $3.7 million since it started in 1999. Thanks to all those who supported our Team and Mary’s Walk!
Congratulations to our Associate, Laura Maher, who successfully argued the issue of governmental immunity under the Maine Tort Claims Act before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. After obtaining summary judgment on behalf of the University of Maine System, Attorney Maher argued that the University is entitled to immunity for injuries arising from a fall due to icy conditions in a parking lot on campus. In its published opinion dated March 15, 2022, the Law Court affirmed the decision of the Superior Court, holding that the parking lot is not an appurtenance to any public building on campus because: (1) It is not annexed to either building; (2) it is not adapted to the realty; and (3) it is not an irremovable part of the buildings. The Court went on to note that deeming a parking area an appurtenance merely because someone parks their vehicle in it to gain access to a public building would impermissibly expand the statutory exception to immunity. Congratulations and job well done, Laura!
