Premises Liability - Tastet v. May

In 2006, Mr. Glas successfully represented a local business owner whose corner lot was adjacent to the road where a car accident resulted in a severe traumatic brain injury. Mr. Glas filed a motion for summary judgement, and the trial court granted that motion, finding the plaintiff failed to prove the fence created a sight obstruction at the intersection and failed to prove actual or constructive notice. The Louisiana Fifth Circuit agreed, affirming the trial court's ruling in Tastet v. May, 05-755 (La.App. 5 Cir. 2/27/06), 925 So.2d 655, writ denied, 2006-0682 (La. 5/26/06), 930 So.2d 32.
