08-01-14Defendant’s Chevy struck a tree-
There was no liability;
The No-Fault Act comes into play
As owner and the driver say;

Barred by the Act’s immunity,
No suit in tort will aid the tree;
Although the oak’s in disarray,
No court can make defendants pay,
M.C.L.A. § 500.3135..

Fisher v. Lowe, 333 N.W.2d 67 (Mich. App. 1983)
