November 3, 2020

Marisa Trasatti (Partner-Baltimore), Robert E. Scott Jr. (Of Counsel-Baltimore) and Zachary Miller (Associate-Baltimore) obtained summary judgment in Delaware Superior Court in favor of a pharmaceutical company in a premises slip-and-fall case. Marisa argued the motion via videoconference during the pandemic, and after follow-up briefing, the court granted summary judgment to all defendants based on Delaware’s continuing storm doctrine, which allows premises owners to wait until the end of a storm to remove snow and treat ice. The claimed damages in the case were significant and attempts at settling the claim prior to the ruling failed.
