Prince v. Pacific Gas & Elec. Co., H028957

In an cross-complaint seeking indemnity in a suit brought by plaintiff who suffered injuries attempting to dislodge his kite from cross-defendant's power line on defendant's property, summary judgment for cross-defendant is reversed, as: 1) defendant can sue cross-defendant for indemnity even though cross-defendant is not liable to plaintiff; and 2) equitable considerations support the conclusion that cross-defendant's statutory immunity from suit by plaintiff does not preclude defendant's cross-complaint for implied contractual indemnity.
