Kiser v. A.J. Bayless Markets, Inc
In Kiser v. A.J. Bayless Markets, Inc., 9 Ariz. App. 103, 449 P.2d 637 (1969) the Court held that, when a lease provided that the lessor was responsible for maintenance of the parking lot where the plaintiff tripped, the lessee owed no duty to the injured party. Id. at 105, 107, 449 P.2d at 639, 641.
The court explained that the lessor's responsibility to maintain the parking lot "negated the existence of any duty owing by defendant lessee to plaintiff with reference to the condition of the parking lot." Id. at 107, 449 P.2d at 641.
