Summary Judgment Obtained

SWB partner Ryan Holt recently obtained summary judgment for a retailer in a premises liability mat case. The court found that there was no evidence suggesting the mat was in a defective or dangerous condition prior to the plaintiff’s fall.  Neither the plaintiff nor her two expert witnesses could describe the condition of the mat before the plaintiff tripped.  The only testimony about the mat’s pre-incident condition came from a former employee who stated that it was flat.
