statutory interpretation and legislative intent

A recent North Dakota Supreme Court opinion analyzes the state's recreational use statute and the legislative intent behind it (the dissenting opinion addresses specifically the majority's focus "on the user's use of the property rather than the owner's purpose in making the property available" and which focus is appropriate).

This is a good, easy-to-understand case for 1-L's to use in discussing statutes and statutory interpretation.
