Our client’s employee was driving from out-of-state to an Oklahoma town, to begin a new job. Although the employee had not begun work yet, the job awaited him. His new employer was paying the cost of his travel. En route, the employee was involved in a serious traffic accident with the Plaintiff. The Plaintiff sustained grievous brain injury. Plaintiff sued both the employee driver and the driver’s new employer. Defending the employer, firm partner Nathan Clark and associate Kyle Rogers argued that the employee was not within the course and scope of his employment at the time of the accident. The court sustained our motion for summary judgment, finding that the employee was not within the scope of his employment, and, that the reimbursement of mileage for an employee to relocate for a job does not by itself bring an employee within the course and scope of employment.
