Summary Judgment Denied in Lycoming County Slip and Fall Case

In a recent decision out of the Lycoming County Court of Common Pleas in the case of Goldy v. Woodlands Bank, No. 15-01334 (C.P. Lycoming Co. May 31, 2016 Gray, J.), Judge Richard A. Gray denied a landowner Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment in a trip and fall case.

The landowner initially asserted that the Plaintiff assumed the risk by walking over an allegedly dangerous condition that the Plaintiff had previously encountered.  The landowner Defendant also argued that it was entitled to summary judgment given that the Plaintiff was unable to state exactly what caused her to fall.  

The court denied the motion after finding issues of fact precluded the entry of summary judgment.
