Appellate Court Clarifies Summary Judgment Standard in Slip and Fall Cases
In Blanca Lago v. Costco Wholesale Corp., 42 Fla. L. Weekly D2599, Case No. 3D16-1899 (Fla. 3rd DCA 2017) the appellate court held: (1) there is no rule or decision that requires a trial court judge to specify his reasons for granting or denying a motion for summary judgment, and (2) summary judgment in favor of the defendant is appropriate where there is no genuine dispute of material fact about the defendant’s knowledge of a liquid substance on its floor.
