Rutherford Christie LLP

Partners Carrie L. Christie and Courtney M. Norton, and Associate Savannah L. Bowling obtained summary judgment in Fall 2021 in a case where Plaintiff alleged that she slipped and fell on a greasy substance at a Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen. The Court agreed with the Rutherford & Christie defense team that Plaintiff failed to carry her burden in establishing that the Defendant had actual or constructive knowledge of the alleged greasy substance on the floor, and found that because Defendant’s Manager had inspected the area just 2 minutes before the fall, the Defendant’s inspection procedures were adequate as a matter of law.
