California Applies Common Carrier Status to Amusement Rides · Jun 16, 11:50 AM

Story here, and the opinion is available at Chad Emerson’s site.


I’ve discussed the case here. As I noted there (and continue to believe), I probably wouldn’t draft a statute to include amusement rides, but think the four-member majority was well within the realm of reason in reaching the conclusion it did. I think it’s a sound assumption that the California park lobbyists will be chatting with their friends in the legislature about amending the statute, which is probably the right place for this sort of decision to be made in the first place.
