Rutherford Christie LLP

In Spring 2021, the Georgia Supreme Court denied plaintiffs’ petition for certiorari in a premises liability case involving a child who sustained burns to the soles of his feet while playing in a restaurant’s outdoor play area. Partners Carrie L. Christie and Courtney M. Norton successfully excluded the testimony of plaintiffs’ chemical expert, who attempted to relate the cause of the child’s burns to a cleaning solution purportedly used on the playground, then obtained summary judgment because plaintiffs lacked expert testimony to meet their burden of establishing the causation element of their negligence claim.
