Williams v. Southern California Gas Co., No. B210897

By FindLaw Staff on August 11, 2009 11:52 AM

In an action for personal injuries involving a malfunctioning gas wall furnace, trial court judgment sustaining defendant's demurrer is affirmed where, although the court erred in sustaining the demurrer on the ground that discovery responses were inconsistent with the second amended complaint, the decision was still correct as defendant-utility did not owe plaintiff a duty of due care since it was a bystander and not under a duty to act.
