Mealey's PI/Product Liability - Federal Judge Partially Grants Summary Judgment In Slip-And-Fall Suit

COLUMBUS, Ga. - A federal judge in Georgia on Dec. 29 partially granted and partially denied a big box store's motion for summary judgment in a slip-and-fall suit after finding that a man who slipped while entering the store presented a genuine issue of material fact over whether the store took precautions to prevent patrons from falling (David Hart v. Walmart Stores East LP, No. 4:16-CV-374, M.D. Ga., 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 212895).
