Pryor and Ryan Earn Summary Judgment

Carr Allison shareholders Caroline Pryor and Sarah Ryan recently won summary judgment in Mobile County Circuit Court (AL) for a premises owner.  The plaintiff in the case alleged that she tripped and fell on a step which she said she did not see before she fell.   The defense argued that the step was marked with four different warnings and was an open and obvious condition.  Though she said she did not see the step or the warnings before the fall, in her deposition, the plaintiff admitted that the four warnings were noticeable.  Following submission of the briefs and oral argument,  summary judgment was granted.

Great Results!
