Attorneys succeeded in representing defendants, the grandparents/homeowners in a case involving the drowning death of their 20 month old granddaughter at their indoor swimming pool. The suit was brought by a court appointed administrator on behalf of the beneficiaries. Plaintiff alleged that the grandmother and/or a contractor working at the house were negligent for leaving a sliding glass door open between the dining room and the pool. Plaintiff also alleged the homeowners were negligent for not updating the door with either an audible alarm when open or a self closing and latching mechanism. Defense attorney argued that the duty to supervise the child never left the mother who was in a bedroom of the house at the time of the incident. The jury deliberated less then two hours before returning a verdict in favor of all defendants.
