The Michigan appeals court has affirmed a decision to throw out a lawsuit filed by Nancy Duncan, who said she was injured when she slipped on grapes at a Livingston County Meijer store.

Duncan said the store should have known there were grapes on a floor mat in front of the fruit display. She said some were brown, a suggestion they had been on the ground awhile.

But the appeals court this week said it's also possible that the grapes were brown before they hit the ground.

There has been so much fraud in the past actual victims of negligence will be left out holding the bag...of bandages. The frauds are known to work in teams, one “victim” and convenient eye witnesses, very convincing for the store’s camera’s.
(My sister was an LPO for a time). She said it sickened her how the theives and frauds have learned to use children to lie for them in court, even known slip and fall repeaters kept getting paid by local stores over and over, of course we pay the price in the end.

So true and very well said!

Beyond time to go back and get all that fraudulent gained money back even IF it only goes to help those who really deserve it rightfully and not a dime to the business places or the insurance company's. I'll bet they'd be OK with that outcome as it would put a damper quickly on the fasle and staged claims knowing the likely outcome.

Then charge the fradulents with what it really was and is, FRAUD! and convict them to the fullest extend of the law including long prison terms. Time is wasting!
