Summary Judgment Granted to School Board in Trip and Fall Lawsuit


Andrew Morey and David Delaney successfully argued a Motion for Summary Judgment on behalf of a Defendant School Board in a claim alleging premises liability on the grounds of an elementary school.  The plaintiff was a visitor to the school who was injured when she tripped over tree roots while walking on the school grounds.  Following the plaintiff’s deposition, the Defendant filed a motion for summary judgment asserting that the allegedly dangerous condition on the school premises should be treated as a “natural condition,” thus exempting the school board from liability.  The Court agreed with the attorneys at Dell Graham and found that summary judgment in favor of the school board was appropriate.
