At 1:30 the COA will hear the premises liability case of Gloria Thompson v. Mildred Lucas.
Thompson and Lucas were friends. One day. Thompson stumbled over some broken concrete (broken by the roots of a pine tree) in Lucas’ driveway and broke her finger so she sued Lucas. Thompson claimed she was an invitee because the night before, she had loaned Lucas $20 while they were at a casino. Lucas argued that Thomson was a licensee. The trial court granted summary judgment to Lucas and Thompson appealed.
Watch the argument here.
