Stacy Fulco obtains summary judgment based on proximate cause and natural accumulation

 
Stacy Fulco obtained summary judgment in a case where an elderly man fell in front of a grocery store and suffered significant injuries, totaling approximately $150,00 in medical specials. The complaint alleged that ice from a faulty building drainage system caused the fall but the plaintiff did not see ice and no witnesses saw the fall or saw where the plaintiff fell. Stacy argued that the plaintiff could not prove his case because he did not know what caused him to fall or where he fell. In the alternative, Stacy argued that any ice on the sidewalk was a natural accumulation as there was no evidence of a problem with the building. The court agreed with both arguments and granted summary judgment.
