2011 Senate Bill 281

House Roll Call 439: Passed

To grant limited immunity to bowling alleys for the liability associated with a very narrow class of “slip-and-fall” lawsuits involving bowling shoes that have been worn outside facility, if the facility complies with certain public notice requirements the bill would establish. Reportedly bowling alleys are getting sued more since a state bar and restaurant smoking ban, because bowlers in bowling shoes step out for a smoke.
