Meddock v. County of Yolo, C070262

Summary judgment for defendant-county on plaintiffs' tort suit alleging a dangerous condition of public property when a tree fell on plaintiff while he was in a park owned by defendant, is affirmed, where: 1) plaintiff's injuries were caused by a natural condition of unimproved property where the tree grew; and 2) the fact the tree fell on the improved portion of the public property, that is, the paved parking lot, does not take this case outside the ambit of the statutory immunity for injuries caused by a natural condition of any unimproved public property.
