Ciciora v. CCAA, Inc., No. 08-1099

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on September 04, 2009 4:16 PM

In a personal injury action, district court's grant of defendants' motion for summary judgment is affirmed where: 1) district court properly granted summary judgment to defendant-business owner, as plaintiff has not presented any evidence that the fall was a result of an unnatural accumulation of ice or an aggravation of an existing condition; 2) district court properly granted summary judgment to defendant-property owner, as mere presence of snow and ice does not demonstrate negligence; and 3) there is no evidence that the ice was anything other than a natural accumulation, and as the duty to maintain a safe ingress and egress does not include the removal of natural accumulations of ice, there is no viable claim here.
