Western Section Reverses Slip Fall Summary Dismissal

RICK P. NEWMAN v. THE KROGER COMPANY
Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys:

Bruce D. Brooke, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Rick P. Newman.

Betty Ann Milligan, Bradford J. Spicer, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, The Kroger Company.

Judge: HIGHERS

This is a slip and fall case. Plaintiff sued The Kroger Company after he fell in a puddle of water near a freezer at a local Kroger store. The trial court granted Kroger’s motion for summary judgment, but failed to include findings indicating the reason for its decision. We find that summary judgment was inappropriate and therefore reverse the trial court’s decision and remand for further proceedings.
