Continential Airlines just lost on a motion for summary judgment before Judge Kyle, U.S. District Court Judge, D. Minn., in a personal injury case arising from a set of stairs where one of 20-odd steps was 2.5 inches higher than those preceding it and, as a result, plaintiff alleges she tripped and was injured.

Property owners are not liable for “really, really, really obvious” dangers under Minnesota law, the Court conceded, but Judge Kyle held that whether this danger was obvious, really obvious, really, really obvious, or really, really obvious is a question for a jury to decide (obviously).
