Our team at Goodman McGuffey is happy to report that the Court of Appeals has reversed the trial Court’s previous ruling denying summary judgment in one of our negligent security cases, directing Judgment be granted in our favor.

The Opinion addressed the important issues that crime statistics and 911 records without additional evidence cannot be used to establish a premises owners’ knowledge of crime. The Court also addressed the issue of the superior knowledge of the Plaintiff.   The Court relied on another one of our cases, Bolton v. Golden Business. 

A good win and a positive result for the client. Great work from our Liability team at GM and we appreciate the hard work on this case from former GM attorney, Elissa Haynes, Esq., who handled it with Robert Luskin.
