Lynn v. Tatitlek Support, 063585

In a wrongful death action involving the issue of whether defendant-employer's temporary employee was acting within the scope of his employment when he caused the automobile accident that killed plaintiff, the trial court's grant of summary judgment in favor of defendant is affirmed on the ground it is undisputed defendant was not vicariously liable for the accident under the doctrine of respondeat superior, as plaintiffs have failed to present evidence supporting these exceptions to the going and coming rule.
