Rodeo Waiver – What makes a good one
Its quite simple in a rodeo waiver the participant is giving up his right to sue. In most cases this will stand up as long as there was no negligence on the event owners part. (Ie faulty rigging, bad buzzer things that are supplied)
The things that will make this rodeo waiver binding are:
1) Its easily understood and explained to the signee
2) A roden waiver form must possess the same 3 basic components of all waivers: offer, acceptance, and consideration.
3) It needs to be signed voluntarily
As long as these conditions are met your and there was no negligence your rodeo waiver should hold up fine.
Genie:Your uncles house was condmened and then razed under an Oklahoma statute. Okay, now we’ve got something to go on.I wanna have a closer look at this, but it’s gonna have to be later. And, like Wormy, I am not an attorney. I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express though.Oh, and I confess to some legal training many many moons ago. My hazy recollection from Property II is a shock at how much control both gov’t and home owner’s associations can actually exercise over your own private property. Which I had previously thought was sacrosanct.I’m wondering if this is one of those situations where the courts have decided that due process is only necessary in form, not substance: ie, posting on the property itself and maybe publishing in local paper considered enough to due process in the case of a vacant property.Which doesn’t mean it’s right, mind you. Besides the question of law (due process), you may have plenty of questions of fact (was the property in fact eligible for such treatment really condemnable, for example?)I want to research more, but if you want to start without me, I’d recommend googling stuff like due process and public nuisances, due process and property condemnation, and see what you come up with. Lawyers are expensive, and it’s a lot easier to be our own attorneys nowadays, thanks to the internet.In the meantime, any additional facts are always helpful.Linda
