Motel wounding case settled

Taboada v. Daily Seven, the premises liability case that greatly expanded the potential liability of hotel operators, has been settled. The case is perhaps better known for the intemperate petition for a rehearing filed by a Roanoke attorney that earned him a contempt citation and a fine from the Virginia Supreme Court.

The Roanoke Times has an excellent account of the case and its significance with links to the Supreme Court opinions and an earlier article.
