Summary Judgment Granted on Proximate Cause Theory

October 14, 2009

Jim Walsh recently obtained summary judgment in favor of Welsbach Electric Corp. (“Welsbach”).

In the face of questions of fact concerning the maintenance of the City-owned traffic signals, London Fischer developed testimony that the parties made informed decisions, without relying on the traffic signals, and therefore Welsbach’s actions were not a proximate cause of the occurrence.
