GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court is stepping into a dispute between a western Michigan park commission and the family of an 11-year-old boy who died in a sledding accident.

The issue is whether the Duncan Park Commission is an arm of local government in Grand Haven. The Michigan appeals court said no and said the commission is not immune to a lawsuit.

Chance Nash of Nunica hit an obstruction at Duncan Park and died in 2009.

The appeals court says the park actually is private land, and the city of Grand Haven doesn’t make rules for it or maintain it.
