Michelle Richter v. American Aggregates Corporatio, et al


OPINION filed: We conclude that the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying AAC s failure-to-prosecute motion. On the merits, however, a genuine dispute of material fact exists as to whether AAC may be liable for the negligence of its general contractor under Michigan s common-work-area doctrine. Therefore, we REVERSE the district court s grant of summary judgment and REMAND the case for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. Decision not for publication. Karen Nelson Moore, Circuit Judge; Jane Branstetter Stranch, Circuit Judge (AUTHORING), and Joseph M. Hood, U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Kentucky, sitting by designation. [12-1624, 12-1641]
