Abstract/Contents:"Article discusses the legal case of Nussbaum v. Lapoco. On June 20, 1963 defendent Lapoco, a trespasser on the golf course, struck a ball from the 13th tee. At that time the rough was dense and the trees were in full foliage. The shot, a high, bad one, "hooked" and crossed over into the area of Nussbaum's patio and there allegedly hit Nussbaum. Lapoco did not see Nussbaum and did not shout the traditional golfer's warning: "Fore!" Nussbaum sued the country club for creating a nuisance and negligence in the design of the golf course. He sued Lapoco for negligence in failure to give a proper warning. The trial court dismissed Nussbaum's claim; the intermediate appeallate court affirmed. Nussbaum then appealed to the state supreme court. The state supreme court agreed with the lower courts that the defendant country club was not negligent under the circumstances of the case."
