Torres v. Design Group Facility Solutions (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb 13, 2020)

I had a serious case of deja vu when I read this opinion, thinking:  "Wait.  I've already read this opinion before.  But the caption doesn't say it's being amended or just published.  What's the deal?"

But it turns out:  I hadn't read the opinion before.  It's totally new.  I was just confused between this opinion and a different recent opinion by the Court of Appeal (which the California Supreme Court is currently reviewing) because they both involve a construction guy who fell through a skylight on a building on which he was working.

The lesson being:  Don't go on the roof of a building with a skylight.  Those things don't hold your weight.
