In Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School, Inc. v. Maynoldi, 30 So. 3d 533 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2010), the family of a teenager severely injured in an auto accident sued his school and the Archdiocese of Miami alleging they were responsible for a party that occurred after school hours and off-campus. After an 8-week trial, the jury awarded $58 million, resulting in a $12 million judgment after application of comparative fault. The Third District Court of Appeal reversed for entry of judgment in the school’s favor, finding the school had no duty to supervise non-school related activities.
