Re: [BKARTS] Insurance SOS



Alice, thanks for the update!

Sad you have to do this ... I wonder if it would also help to have your
"party goers" sign a release absolving you of  responsible for anything that
happens to them on the condo's property? Then, to lighten things up, lead a
toast (or dance?) to survival in litigious 21st Century America!

Legally I think you could still be held responsible for obvious negligence,
but a signed release would probably cover you against typical accidental
mishaps.

Good luck!

Laurie
