The Los Angeles Daily Journal, Verdicts and Settlements Section, published a result in favor of Murchison & Cumming's client in a premises liability case in a personal injury matter in which the plaintiff claimed she was bitten on the face by a dog. The plaintiff brought a three-count complaint against defendant pet supply for strict liability, negligence and premises liability. Over the course of discovery, the plaintiff voluntarily dismissed her strict liability claim against defendant as it was learned the defendant was not the owner of the Maltese and was simply allowing the dog's owner to show the puppy in her store so it could be adopted. The court granted the defendants' motion for summary judgment on the remaining premises liability claim. The case was handled by Lisa D. Angelo and Kelsey L. Maxwell.
