At 11:00 the COA will hear the case of John Tate Campbell v. Harrison County Board of Supervisors, et al.
Campbell was walking on the beach near the corner of Courthouse Rd and Beach Boulevard when he fell 8 to 10 feet into an open culvert. He broke his leg and it became infected. He sued Harrison County, and the Harrison County Sand Beach Authority. The trial court granted summary judgment for Harrison County finding that the culvert was not a dangerous condition since even Campbell admitted it was open and obvious in daylight.
