Steven G. Wraith, Carinne E. Bannan, and Zabrina B. Delgado won a defense verdict in Snyder-Stone v. Schwartz Brothers et al. in King County Superior Court. Plaintiff sued the owners of the restaurant after she slipped while walking through the restaurant. The plaintiff argued the activities of the restaurant employees were unreasonably dangerous when the host allegedly abandoned the plaintiff and a server allegedly failed to yield to her. She claimed she slipped and fell after being forced to take emergency evasive action to avoid a collision. Plaintiff’s counsel requested $2.6 million at trial. After a three-week Zoom trial, the jury found the restaurant was not negligent.
