undisputable fact that Choate trespassed onto defendants’ property and then tried three
times to jump onto a moving train in order to show off to his girlfriend that a new trial is
required on this basis as well. “[S]mall inequities” in allocation of fault can be tolerated,
but this certainly is not such a case. Junker v. Ziegler, 113 Ill.2d 332, 340 (1986).
The Court should reverse the judgment below and render judgment in favor of
defendants. At minimum, the Court should order a new trial.
