Adamson Companies (defendant) owned a parcel of land through which an active landslide ran. The landslide was a natural condition that was not impacted by Adamson’s activities on the land. During a heavy rain, the landslide activated and moved the house of Peter Sprecher (defendant), who lived across the street. The landslide caused Sprecher’s house to contact the house of his neighbor, Gwendolyn Sexton (plaintiff). Sexton filed suit against Sprecher. Sprecher filed a cross-complaint against Adamson, arguing that Adamson had a duty to correct or control the landslide. Adamson moved for summary judgment. The trial court granted the motion because the landslide was a natural condition of the land, which shielded Adamson from liability. Sprecher appealed.
