Case Description: Plaintiff-appellant Stephen H. Grabowski sustained injuries arising from horseplay at his job site. After claiming and receiving workers' compensation benefits, Grabowski brought a third party negligence action against co-employees involved in the horseplay: defendant-appellees William Mangler, David Smith, and Joseph Ziemba. Mangler, Smith, and Ziemba filed motions for summary judgment, which the trial judge granted.

Proceedings Description: On remand, the trial judge applied the four-factor Larson test and found that Appellees' conduct occurred within the course and scope of employment, and granted summary judgment for Appellees. Grabowski argues that on remand the Superior Court misapplied the Larson test.

Outcome: The supreme court affirmed the judgment of the trial court.
