The Monson Law Firm Wins Summary Judgment in Slip and Fall Case

Attorney Sarah Barro recently won a Motion for Summary Judgment in the case of “Angel Ellis v. Vintage Square, Inc. d/b/a Arcade Theater, et al.” in the 22nd Judicial District Court for the Parish of St. Tammany. Plaintiff alleged that she tripped and fell down stairs at a wedding venue due to a loose bannister. In the Motion for Summary Judgment, The Monson Law Firm successfully argued that defendant lacked notice of the loose bannister prior to the accident. Plaintiff admitted that she used the subject stairs minutes prior to her fall and did not notice any issues with the bannister. The Honorable Alan Zaunbrecher granted the motion by judgment signed on July 11, 2018 and dismissed plaintiff’s claims, with prejudice. Please click here for a copy of that judgment. Ellis Judgment
