Amendola v. MLTK, LLC

Attorney Patricia Golden prevailed on a motion for summary judgment to dismiss all claims against her client, the owner of a supermarket. In this action, the plaintiff alleged that she was caused to fall due to the presence of “too much wax” on the supermarket floor, but did not make any other complaints or allegations regarding a defective or dangerous condition at the location of the incident other than stating that the floor was slippery and shiny. Ms. Golden successfully argued that where a plaintiff alleges only “too much wax” and neither alleges that there was negligent application of same, nor presents any expert evidence, New York courts have held that there is no cause of action.
