PERSONAL INJURY - PRICE V. MACON COUNTY GREYHOUND PARK, INC.
In Price v. Macon County Greyhound Park, Inc., [Ms. 2090881, Jan. 21, 2011] __ So. 3d __(Ala. Civ. App. 2011), a unanimous Court of Civil Appeals affirmed entry of summary judgment in favor of the Macon County Greyhound Park in a trip and fall case. Reviewing the law of the duties owed to invitees, the Court concluded, after its de novo review of the evidence, that Mrs. Price had presented no evidence the park had constructive notice of the presence of the debris that caused her to fall before she fell. The Court also concluded that there was a failure of proof of wantonness: "[Mrs.] Price did not present any evidence from which it can be inferred that the park knew of the existing conditions, i.e., the presence of the particular debris that caused Price to fall and the location where she fell."
