Patrick T. O’Connor, David Bobo Mullens, and Stuart F. Sumner win summary judgment for Garden City, Georgia

The State Court of Chatham County granted summary judgment in favor of Garden City, Georgia. The Plaintiff asserted claims of negligence and negligence per se against Garden City and one of its employees. The Plaintiff alleged that while he was at a Garden City sponsored community program, a city van backed into him and pinned his leg against a wall, resulting in severe injuries. After the employee was dismissed from the case, Oliver Maner moved for summary judgment on all claims, arguing that the ante litem notice provided to the city was not legally sufficient. Following oral arguments, the Honorable Judge Hermann Coolidge granted summary judgment in the defendant’s favor on all claims.
