Last week’s post, Waiver Protects Cheerleader Organization from Liability for Negligence in Georgia, examined the effect of a waiver on the liability of Georgia All Stars (GA). The court also said that GA was protected by the Georgia Recreational Property Act (OCGA § 51-3-20 et seq.). In this post, we will examine the latter source of liability protection for some recreation providers. To review, Kimberly Shields sued RDM, LLC d/b/a Georgia All Stars for negligence when Kimberly tripped and fell from mats on the floor at an exhibition of participants’ routines for parents to view in the practice area of the gym.
