VLA&S partner, Jennifer Thomas, successfully defended our client, a Mobile Home Park, against allegations the park failed to properly maintain trees on its premises, causing Plaintiff to trip over a fallen tree branch. Following extensive fact discovery, briefing, and oral argument, the court ruled our client presented sufficient undisputed evidence to establish it was under no obligation to remedy or warn Plaintiff of the fallen tree branch because it was an open and obvious condition, or should have been observed in the exercise of reasonable care. The court granted our client’s Motion for Summary Judgment, disposing of the case in its entirety.  Congratulations to Jennifer and her team on an excellent victory.
