George Royer provides CLE on recreational use statutes
Lanier Ford attorney George Royer recently spoke about Alabama recreational use statutes at the fall municipal law conference held September 21 to 23, 2017, and sponsored by the Alabama Association of Municipal Attorneys.
These statutes are designed to encourage land owners to make areas available for public non-commercial recreational use by limiting the liability of the land owners. Municipalities are covered by these statutes. Among other topics, Mr. Royer’s presentation addressed the defenses that the statutes provide when municipalities are sued for accidents that occur on such property.
Mr. Royer regularly defends municipalities and other local governmental entities in lawsuits involving tort liability, civil rights violations, commercial disputes, and employment law. As part of his employment law practice, he represents employers in lawsuits filed under state and federal anti-discrimination laws—including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
