Roberson v. AFC Enters., Inc., 09-2523

In a personal injury action based on plaintiff's fall in defendant's parking lot, judgment as a matter of law for defendant is affirmed where, because the Missouri Supreme Court held that the defendant's method of marketing was the more important factor in determining whether the defendant knew, or by using ordinary care should have known, of the dangerous condition, and plaintiff offered no evidence on this factor, plaintiff failed to satisfy this element of premises liability.
