Condo owner cannot sue over defect in common area that caused him injury

In Francescutti v. Fox Chase Condo Association, the Court of Appeals ruled that the plaintiff could not bring a personal injury action arising out of his fall on an ice covered and allegedly poorly maintained sidewalk.  The Court noted that since the plaintiff was a "tenant in common" of the common areas of the development where he lived, he was not injured on "the land of another" and therefore he had no right to sue as an invitee or licensee.
