Property Damage - Water Damage - Motions for Summary Judgment Granted

In 2009, Mr. Keller and Mr. Roux represented a general contractor in a lawsuit filed by a store owner inside Clearview Mall in Jefferson Parish. The plaintiff's sale items allegedly sustained water damage when a contractor struck a sprinkler head in an adjacent store. Mr. Keller and Mr. Roux filed two motions for summary judgment, and the court granted both, finding no genuine issues of material fact with respect to the allegations of vicarious liability and independent acts of negligence.
