Slip and fall case against condo association is dismissed

 Linda Hurd argued that inadequate snow and ice removal was the cause of her fall at the Franklin Village Townhouses in Oakland County.  The Court never addressed the substance of her claim because it concluded that neither the statutory duty to maintain the condo premises, nor the condo association's by-laws, created any duty on the part of the condo association to maintain the condo's common areas.   Because the snow and ice in the common areas were "discoverable on casual inspection," they were open and obvious hazards and the association owed not duty to address them.
