Attorneys Ashley Brown and Jared Hudson obtained summary judgment in favor of George K. Bowling Community Park, Inc. based on recreational immunity granted in KRS 411.190. The Recreational Use statute was enacted by the Kentucky legislature to encourage landowners to open their properties to the public free of charge without fear of liability. In this case, the defense argued that immunity applied, as the community park was open to the public without a fee for entry, citing the published Court of Appeals opinion Draper v. Trace Creek Girls’ Softball, Inc. 571 S.W.3d 103 (Ky. Ct. App. 2018), in which WHT attorneys Ashley Brown and Graham Barth successfully defended an appeal of a summary judgment based on the Recreational Use Statute.
