Wieland v. Owner-Operator Services, Inc.

The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the circuit court in favor of Plaintiff on her claim of negligence alleging that Defendant, her employer, breached its duty to protect her from the criminal act of a third person on its premises. On appeal, Defendant argued that the circuit court erred in submitting a verdict director to the jury that was not supported by substantial evidence and erred in allowing Plaintiff to make arguments to the jury that misstated the law as instructed in the verdict director. The Supreme Court held (1) the allegation of error made in Defendant’s first point on appeal was not properly preserved; and (2) Defendant’s remaining arguments on appeal were unavailing.
