In Kriete-Green v. R.W. Dunteman Company et al., 2011 L 009979, summary judgment was granted in favor of a paving and excavating subcontractor, R.W. Dunteman Company (“RWDC”).  The suit alleged that RWDC permitted an unreasonably dangerous traffic configuration to exist at or near the intersection of York Road and US-20 W; failed to provide adequate barriers to protect construction workers; and failed to post adequate roadway signs or post a flagman to warn vehicles to stop or reduce their speed at or near the construction site.  After discovery was completed, summary judgment was granted in favor of RWDC on the basis that it owed no duty.  No appeal was filed and the plaintiff refused to make a settlement demand at any time during RWDC’s involvement in the case.
