Summary Judgment for Buckhead Restaurant Premises Liability
Dan McGrew achieved a victory for a local Buckhead restaurant in the Court of Appeals. The case arose out of the hit and run death of a pedestrian in front of the Buckhead establishment. The decedent’s heir filed suit against this eatery as well as several other contiguous storefronts claiming that the row of establishments were responsible for the decedent’s death. The Complaint was premised upon several theories of liability including premises liability and negligent assumption of the duty to maintain the safety of the street. The Court of Appeals affirmed summary judgment and found that the Buckhead establishment was not liable for the injuries claimed. The Plaintiff was seeking damages in excess of ten million dollars.
