Updated: Sep 28, 2020

Sweeny, Wingate, & Barrow, P.A. partner Ryan Holt and associate Will Neinast recently obtained summary judgment for a retailer in a premises liability case. The court found that the plaintiff failed to present sufficient evidence that the store display on which she claimed she tripped amounted to a hazardous condition, or that the retailer was on notice of any allegedly hazardous condition. The court further held that the display was open and obvious such that the plaintiff could have avoided it.
