Attorneys Melkonian and Walbridge Obtain Multiple Summary Dispositions in Wayne County Circuit Court


Attorneys Kari L. Melkonian and Patrick J. Walbridge recently obtained summary dispositions in Wayne County Circuit Court for two separate clients.

The first was on behalf of a hotel in a case arising out of a slip and fall on water at a wedding reception. The Court held that the alleged water was observable, therefore plaintiff’s claim was barred by the open and obvious doctrine.

The other was on behalf of a restaurant in an implied warranty and food safety act claim arising out of dental injuries sustained from a foreign object in a salad. In this case, the Court found that plaintiff failed to meet his burden of establishing a breach or causation as he could not identify the alleged foreign object.
