Jallah v. Diverscape
Plaintiffs appeal from a summary judgment in favor of Diverscape, Inc. in a personal injury action. The issue raised on appeal is whether the 1996 Motor Carriers of Property Permit Act imposes a nondelegable duty of care on Diverscape, as a motor carrier of property, making it liable for the negligent acts of an independent contractor it hired to transport materials to a job site. Court concluded that Diverscape was a private carrier as defined by the MCPPA, and that the MCPPA does not impose a nondelegable duty of care on private carriers. Therefore, court affirmed the judgment.
