On Friday, January 13, 2017, a Harris County District Judge issued findings of fact and conclusions of law determining no liability for an indoor trampoline park following a minor’s injuries in a lawsuit styled Justin Macik v. CCADS, Inc d/b/a Sky Zone Houston.  Macik, age 17 at the time of the incident, filed a premises liability suit seeking damages after sustaining a tibia and fibula fracture at Sky Zone Houston.  This case marked one of the first cases involving premises liability claims against a park for the presence of angled wall trampolines. Plaintiff presented a substantial damage model after having undergone five surgeries following his injuries.

Sky Zone Houston was represented by Will Moye and Molly Pela of Thompson Coe.  The risk was insured by Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s, London.
