KDC wishes to thank the authors of the most recent KDC amicus curiae brief, Joey Wright of Thompson Miller & Simpson PLC, and Andrew Yocum of Kriz, Jenkins, Prewitt & Jones, P.S.C. They co-authored the amicus brief to the Kentucky Supreme Court in the case of Waugh v. Parker, which deals with possible expansion of the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act. In that case the tenant fell off her porch when a railing gave way, and then brought a negligence per se claim against her landlords for their alleged failure to comply with Louisville housing codes as required by URLTA. But does URLTA allow such a cause of action? The Court of Appeals said no.
KDC also wishes to thank the Amicus Committee Chair, David Kramer of Dressman Benzinger LaVelle psc, and Vice-Chairs, Aaron Silletto of Goldberg Simpson LLC, and Bill Orberson of Phillips Parker Orberson & Arnett, PLC, for their continuing work on behalf of the civil defense bar of Kentucky.
