Employer Not Vicariously Liable For Employees Negligence In Mishandling Keys To Own Car

In Allan v. Graf (4D08-5130), the Fourth District released an opinion relating to vicarious liability and stated:
The question in this case is whether a n employer can be held vicariously liable for an employee’s negligence in mishandling the car keys to his own car, thereby allowing a thief to steal the car and injure a third party. We hold that the employer cannot be held vicariously liable and affirm the final summary judgment entered by the circuit court.
