Subject: Invitee v. Licensee
Pl. was killed when cutting down a tree at Def.’s house in preparation for a holiday gathering due to the tree falling on him. He was living there and considered a ‘son-in-law’ by the owners who discussed but did not ask him to cut down the tree.
Is the plaintiff an invitee or a licensee?
He is an licensee, or ‘social guest’ which is characterized as a licensee.
-A landowner owes an invitee a duty to exercise ordinary care to protect him from risks of which the owner is actually aware and those risks of which the owner should be aware after reasonable inspection.
-The duty a landowner owes to a licensee is to not injure him by ‘willful, wanton, or grossly negligent conduct, and that the owner use ordinary care to either warn a licensee of, or to make reasonably safe, a dangerous condition of which the owner is aware and the licensee is not.”

While in law school I traveled the world. Puerto Rico. Egypt. Israel. The Netherlands. All over the United States. Costa Rica. Panama... How, you ask? I found ways to make money on the side. One of those ways was hosting my apartment on AirBnB. If you have an extra room, this is a perfect way to make some extra cash.
Since law school, I have traveled to dozens of countries for pleasure with my family. It's not rocket science. You just need to know how to start some side hustles. Another one of my favorite ways to make money is buying and selling stocks and cryptocurrency on Robinhood. Join now and get a free stock through this link: Join Robinhood and Get a Free Stock!
