Summary Judgment Granted in Monroe County Supermarket Slip and Fall Case

In the case of Baboolal v. Bracey's Mt. Pocono, Inc, No. 8464 CIVIL 2015 (C.P. Monroe Co. Feb. 27, 2017 Williamson, J.), the Monroe County Court of Common Pleas granted summary judgment in favor of a Defendant supermarket in a case where a  Plaintiff allegedly slipped and fell due to a grape and/or moisture on the floor.  

The Plaintiff alleged that he was caused to fall when her shopping cart slid due to moisture on the floor, causing her to fall to her knees and allegedly sustain injuries.  

The court found that there was no evidence of an actual constructive notice on the part of the Defendant store of these conditions.
