High court sends Farmington Hills golf cart case back to judge

The Michigan Supreme Court is sending a golf cart dispute back to the first tee.

Ken Bertin and Doug Mann were playing at Farmington Hills Golf Club in 2013 when Mann accidentally hit Bertin with a cart. Bertin filed a lawsuit over his injuries.

An Oakland County jury said Mann didn’t commit reckless misconduct. The case has been appealed because Bertin argues that the legal standard applied by the judge was too high.

In a unanimous decision Wednesday, the state Supreme Court ordered Judge Martha Anderson to take another swing. The court says Bertin deserves a new trial if the judge finds that the risk of being hit by the cart wasn’t reasonably foreseeable.
