Defended a Sporting Goods Store in a Slip-and-Fall Case
We are representing Dick’s Sporting Goods, in a premises liability case. The plaintiff was visiting the store on a rainy day, and when attempting to step over a puddle, she slipped and fell, injuring herself. We defended that the hazard was an “open and obvious” condition and were granted summary judgment. The plaintiff appealed the decision, and the Kentucky Court of Appeals reversed. . We obtained discretionary review before the Kentucky Supreme Court and are awaiting a ruling following the submission of briefs and oral argument.
