Kenneth E. Smith, Jr., Cathy Smith, and Jeffery Harbrecht appeal the trial court’s grant of summary judgment to Gerhard King and Christine King. The Smiths and Harbrecht raise one issue, which we restate as whether the trial court erred when it determined that the Kings did not owe a duty to Kenneth.
Conclusion (slip op. at 12): We affirm the trial court’s grant of summary judgment to the Kings.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 12): Because Harbrecht had not yet completed the stairs from the residence’s first floor to the basement, leaving an open hole in the floor, Gerhard King nailed a plywood sheet against the opening. This one instance of a safety precaution taken by the Kings does not raise a jury question as to whether a duty was assumed.
