Mickey has recently leased a one thousand acre estate from Orion. Orion had bought the land a few months earlier from a retired well-digger. What Orion did not know was that the well-digger liked to practice his craft on the land and that there were several open pits in various parts of the property. Also, before the well-digger sold the property to Orion, he hid the pits with branches and leaves. Mickey is wandering around the property a few weeks after taking possession of it when he falls into one of the pits and breaks his leg. If Mickey sues Orion for negligence, Mickey will be able to recover for his injuries:
True
False
