Attorneys Wayne Melnick and Sangeetha Krishnakumar won summary judgment for FMG clients in Fulton County, Georgia. Plaintiff, the surviving parent and administrator of her son’s estate, brought suit against a property owner alleging theories of premises liability/negligent security against FMG’s clients. FMG argued its client was an out-of-possession landlord and not subject to liability under Georgia’s premises liability statute. The Court agreed with FMG and rejected plaintiff’s argument that questions of fact remained that the landlord and lessee corporations had mutual members, and therefore they should be treated as one entity for denying summary judgment.
