Stelluti v. Casapenn Enterprises, LLC
New Jersey Supreme Court
1 A.3d 678 (2010)
Gina Stelluti (plaintiff) participated in her first spin class on the day she became a member of Powerhouse Gym (Powerhouse) (defendant). When the class instructor told the group to go from a seated cycling position to a standing cycling position, Stelluti’s spin bike handlebars became dislodged and she fell over the bike and sustained injuries to her back and neck and suffered a cracked tooth and bruises. When Stelluti completed the Powerhouse membership application she signed a waiver and release of liability for any injuries she sustained while exercising at the facility. Stelluti filed suit against Powerhouse, its owner and operator, Casapenn Enterprises, LLC, and others. The trial court granted Powerhouse’s motion for summary judgment and Stelluti appealed. The appellate division affirmed and the New Jersey Supreme Court granted certiorari to review.
