Rich King and Renée Melchiode obtain summary judgment in trip-and-fall case

Rich King and Renée Melchiode successfully challenged a plaintiff’s trip and fall on behalf of The Kearney Company and its insurer. The plaintiff allegedly tripped and fell in a large hole on the premises.  MMK attorneys filed a summary judgment motion, arguing that the hole was an open and obvious condition. Pending in Orleans Parish, the trial judge granted summary judgment in favor of MMK’s client and dismissed the plaintiff’s claim, finding that the plaintiff could not provide evidence that she was either an invitee or that the hole was anything other than open and obvious.
