Summary Judgment Granted In Spilled Soup Case

Summary Judgment was granted in favor of defendant
food and beverage store in a claim involving a slip and fall on spilled
soup.  The Court found the store did not have actual or constructive
notice of the alleged dangerous condition, as a store employee inspected the
area within 2 to 3 minutes before plaintiff fell.  In addition, the trial
court sustained many objections to the evidence proffered by plaintiff’s
experts, who claimed the flooring at the subject store was “inherently
dangerous.”
