CFHO OBTAINS SUMMARY JUDGMENT IN PREMISES LIABILITY CASE
Congratulations to Ruben J. Olvera for obtaining summary judgment in a premises liability case filed in Bexar County, Texas. Our client, a local convenience store, was sued after a customer tripped and fell on a security bar while entering the premises at closing time. The Plaintiff was seeking damages in an amount up to $1,000,000, including approximately $220,000 in past medical expenses. After deposing the Plaintiff, Mr. Olvera moved for a traditional and no evidence summary judgment, and argued that the convenience store did not owe a duty because the alleged dangerous condition was open, obvious and known to the Plaintiff. The Court agreed and granted summary judgment, dismissing all of the Plaintiff’s claims.
