Superior Court Dismisses Premises Case
Beckstedt & Associates' aggressive, yet prudent, use of Rule 12 motion practice is paying dividends to its defense clients. This month we were successful in having the court dismiss a premises liability case based upon plaintiff's failure to state a claim. Rather than try to amend, the plaintiff abandoned the action. While not always so lucky, we have found that challenging deficient pleadings has allowed us to posture many cases for an early, favorable resolution or force an amendment which reduces discovery costs asociated with shot-gun type pleadings.
