Malatesta Obtains Summary Judgment in a Slip and Fall Case

Christy V. Malatesta obtained summary judgment for a national restaurant chain in a slip and fall case in Hinds County, Mississippi.  While the lawsuit was pending the plaintiff filed for bankruptcy.  The Court found that the plaintiff failed to list the lawsuit as an asset in her bankruptcy proceedings and was judicially estopped from pursuing the claim after her debt was discharged.
