Affirming summary judgment in favor of auto service in suit for negligence

To access case, press here

Richard Duncan filed a negligence suit against M&M Auto Service, Inc., alleging he was injured due to M&M’s negligent installation and maintenance of a compressed natural gas (CNG) system in his employer’s van. The trial court granted summary judgment for M&M.
Conclusion (slip op. at 8):  We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 7, 8):  Duncan did not designate any evidence demonstrating M&M assumed a duty to maintain the van . . . Zedonis’ conjecture that M&M may have known a redundant check valve was advisable is insufficient to create a genuine issue of material fact.
