Aleice Jeter v. Sam’s Club and Linden Route One Associates (A-2-21)

Client: New Jersey Food Council (amicus curiae in support of Sam’s Club)

Court: Supreme Court of New Jersey

Trial Attorney: Betsy G. Ramos, Esq. (prepared and argued our amici arguments before the NJ Supreme Court)

**Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances**

Supreme Court affirmed the lower court rulings in favor of Sam’s Club, ruling that sale of grapes in closed, sealed clamshell container not subject to Mode of Operation rule; rather, injured plaintiff who fell on grape on the floor would need to prove that Sam’s Club had actual or constructive notice of the grape on the floor to be able to pursue a claim for her injuries. Without such notice, the lawsuit was dismissed.
