Snow Removal Contractor Not Liable in Slip and Fall

Facts: On Jan. 17, 2010, a pedestrian, while walking his dog, slipped and fell on patch of black ice in the roadway owned by the condominium homeowners association (COA). The COA had contracted out snow removal for the roadways and walkways to a landscape company for the 2009 and 2010 winter season. If a weather event met certain conditions, the contractor would automatically perform the snow removal. Otherwise, the COA would call the contractor for any additional services. The contractor last plowed the roadway on Jan. 2 and 4. At that time, sand and salt were applied.
