July 3, 2018

Doug Smith and Claire Sumner obtained summary judgment on behalf of their client, an early learning and daycare center, in a negligent supervision case pending in the State Court of Gwinnett County.  Plaintiffs, the parents of an injured minor, alleged that their daughter was seriously and permanently injured while at recess at daycare.  However, Plaintiffs, purportedly relying on the doctrine of res ipsa loquitor, pointed to no evidence of any negligent act or omission on the part of the defendant.  The defense moved for summary judgment on these grounds, and the Court agreed.
