Quinlivan & Hughes attorneys Michael D. LaFountaine, Dyan Ebert, and Laura Moehrle recently received a favorable ruling from the Minnesota Supreme Court in Staab v. Diocese of St. Cloud. The decision, handed down by the Supreme Court on April 18, 2012, holds that a tortfeasor who is 50% or less at fault pays only that percentage-even if the remaining fault was placed on a tortfeasor who was not a party to the action. This is a landmark decision which supports the principle that defendants should only be liable for their own fault and should not be required to pay percentages of fault attributable to others.
