EXERCISE 5.3 CHECKING CASE CITATIONS ON YOUR OWN
Name: Arman Gueyikian
Professor: Proff. Schwinn
Due Date: 10/12/2023
Problem Set: O - Pennsylvania
I. Locating the Case
This case is relevant to our research because the plaintiff in this case is also a minor
who establishes a prima facie case for negligence of a property owner. The case sets
out the elements for establishing a prima facie case under the attractive nuisance
doctrine in Pennsylvania. The legal question for this exercise discusses what is
necessary for a plaintiff to establish a prima facie case under the attractive nuisance
II. Selecting a Citator
I am using Lexis for this exercise. I have found the interface of Lexis much more
navigable than Westlaw.
III. Using the Citator and Interpreting the Entry
A. Yes, this case is still good law in Pennsylvania. When I looked under the citing decisions
portions on Lexis for this case, there is no other cases that give it negative treatment.
B. Three additional cases that could be used to help articulate the rule are: 1. Warnick v. Home
Depot, U.S.A Inc., 2. Beil v. Telesis Construction Inc., and 3. Ott v. Unclaimed Freight Co.
