Banks v. Avis Rent-a-Car

Avis Rent-a-Car

Summary judgment granted in favor of Avis Rent-a-Car because there was no evidence that Avis knew or should have known that the driver-defendant was unlicensed, incompetent, or reckless when Avis rented an automobile to the negligent driver-defendant.

When Avis rented the vehicle to the driver-defendant, Avis verified that she had a valid driver's license, which operated as evidence of the driver-defendant's competency.
