Eubank v. Kansas City Power & Light Co., 09-2038

In a wrongful death action against Kansas City Power and Light Company (KCPL), the company that supplied electricity to a U.S. General Services Administration facility where the decedent was killed, the dismissal of KCPL's third-party complaint is affirmed where the U.S. had not assumed a duty to KCPL to protect government employees from hazardous electrical equipment simply by choosing KCPL as an electrical provider.
