Law360, New York (April 11, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT) -- Remember those awkward birthday parties at the local bowling alley? You’d stand before the lane, ball in hand, staring down the pins. You’d roll the ball down the lane, but no matter what you did, no matter how hard you hurled the ball, there was always one pin that defiantly stood its ground and refused to fall.
You didn’t know it then, but that pin was Aspen Skiing Co. v. Aspen Highlands Skiing Corp., 472 U.S. 585 (1985).
