LVT Number: #30717
Tenant sued landlord for negligence after he slipped and fell while stepping out of a combined bathtub/shower in his apartment after taking a shower. Tenant claimed that the wet and slippery condition of the floor was the result of landlord's failure to repair the brackets that held the shower curtain rod. The court granted landlord's request to dismiss the case without trial.
