Martin and Miller Win Summary Judgment

Sean W. Martin and Chancey R. Miller of our Chattanooga (TN) office recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of a construction client in the US District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. The plaintiff in the case alleged the cause of his fall was a large steel plate used to cover an excavated area during an ongoing utility project.

Sean and Chancey moved the Court for summary judgment based on the plaintiff’s inability to establish the causation and elements of negligence. The Court granted summary judgment based on the plaintiff’s failure to identify the cause of his fall through personal testimony. The Court ordered the plaintiff to pay costs and dismissed the case in its entirety.

Great results!
