Summary Judgment Affirmed in Fatal Slip and Fall Case ("Non-precedential")

Tort Talkers may recall that Summary Judgment was granted by the trial court in a fatal slip and fall case under the caption of Wasnetsky v. Quinn's Market, No. 14-CV-4437 (C.P. Lacka. Co. June 15, 2018 Nealon, J.).  Summary Judgment was granted due to the absence of any dangerous condition of the floor and/or any actual or constructive notice on the part of the Defendant.

The June 21, 2018 Tort Talk post on the trial court's decision can be viewed HERE

By way of status update, on April 9, 2019, the Pennsylvania Superior Court issued a Non-precedential Memorandum affirming the decision by Judge Terrence R. Nealon in the court below.  That appellate decision can be reviewed HERE.

As a further update, it is noted that, yesterday, January 2, 2020, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied plaintiff's petition for allowance of appeal.  Here is a LINK to the Supreme Court's Order in this regard.
