Willful, Wanton Conduct and Governmental Immunity
By Robert A. Clifford

Ryan Murray was an eighth-grader at Bryn Mawr Elementary School on Chicago's Southeast Side. The chubby 13-year-old signed up for an extracurricular tumbling class during lunch period in the school's main building with an instructor hired by the Chicago Board of Education from Chicago Youth Centers.

One of the pieces of equipment used was a mini-trampoline that had been purchased by the board. In December 1992, Ryan took his turn jumping on the mini-trampoline that had been set in place by the instructor, James Collins. Collins did not require spotters while others were jumping, and the plaintiff's expert indicated that the padding for such exercises was insufficient.

At the end of the class, the instructor allowed free time for the students to do whatever they wanted, without instruction or guidance. Ryan jumped off the mini-trampoline into the air, attempting to perform a flip, and landed on his upper chest and neck, partially on the mat and partially on the gym floor. He sustained injuries that rendered him a quadriplegic.
