Dickinson v. Clark (1389 words)
Clarence did not warn or instruct Angela about the use of the splitter and he did not prevent her from loading it despite his awareness of a label warning against allowing minors to use the splitter.
Clarence agrees that the complaint does not allege premises liability, but contends that, should the court find otherwise, the statute applies because Angela and her family were engaged in a harvesting activity on Clarence's land.
Clarence contends that he did not owe a duty to Angela pursuant to section 388 because subsection (b) indicates that there is no duty to warn when a danger is obvious and would be disclosed by a casual inspection.

The Clarks gave Mulfinger and Kemp carte blanche on the design, but there were some things that were not negotiable: They wanted plenty of room for their three kids and their friends, a studio space for Tara and a design that steers clear of superfluous sentimentality.
