Oklahoma Governmental Tort Claims Act: Negligence and Notice

CZW successfully defended the Board of County Commissioners of Murray County in Hicks v. Kirkpatrick, et al. In Hicks, a teenager brought suit in negligence against another driver and the Board of County Commissioners of Murray County, claiming that his injuries were caused in part or in whole because of a downed stop sign. The District Court of Murray County granted summary judgment in favor of the Board of County Commissioners, finding that the Board of County Commissioners did not have actual or constructive notice of the downed sign and the other driver’s negligence was the proximate cause of the accident because the other driver knew that there was supposed to be a stop sign at that intersection, but ran it.
