Summary Judgment in a Trip And Fall Accident at County Jail

Obtained summary judgment for Quitman County, Mississippi, in a suit arising out of trip and fall accident at the County Jail. The court found that the plaintiff did not prove a dangerous condition existed and that the defendant was immune under the Mississippi Tort Claims Act because the alleged dangerous condition was open and obvious and, alternatively, the defendant did not have actual or constructive notice of any alleged danger.
