Local attorney, Gary Bruce, answers viewer questions and discusses legal implications of current events on this segment of Legal Break with WTVM. One viewer asks if they can be punished for participating in the National Walkout Day protest against gun violence. Gary states that while there are likely no long term effects of participating in the protest, your school can punish you for an unexcused absence or for being late to class for the duration of the protest.
Gary Bruce also discusses an aspect of premises liability after the St. Patrick’s Day balcony collapse in Savannah, Georgia. Many times a business is owned by one person and run by someone else. If the operator of an establishment knew or should have known of the danger, they have a responsibility to warn patrons. However, if the business has complained to the property owner, they may have an action for reimbursement against the landlord or owner.
