Tort Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC42987 - Augustine v. CNAPS, LLC (Negligence; premises liability; "In this negligence action sounding in premises liability, the plaintiff, Sandra Augustine, appeals from the summary judgment rendered by the trial court in favor of the defendant, CNAPS, LLC. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly concluded that there was no evidence that the alleged premises defect was the proximate cause of the plaintiff's fall. We conclude that the plaintiff presented sufficient evidence to show the existence of a genuine issue of material fact on the question of causation. Accordingly, we reverse the judgment of the trial court.")
