Magistrate Judge Stephanie Gallagher of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland recently held that a woman who fell in a display boat at a boat show has established a sufficient claim to proceed to trial. In the case of Schneider v. Ed’s Marine Superstore, Inc., a woman was injured when she slipped and fell in a boat. She claimed the boat had a slippery surface, lacked support on the stern, and that no one responsible for putting the boat on display was present to supervise her while boarding. The marine store being sued claimed that the woman could not provide enough detail as to the cause of her fall to make the claim, but it was unsuccessful in making this argument.
