Memorandum of Points and Authorities In Support of Defendant Safeway Inc.’s Motion for Summary Judgment
This action arises out of a slip and fall incident on March 24,2009, between 8:40 a.m. and 8:45 a.m., in the dairy department of a Safeway supermarket located in Sacramento, California. Defendant does not dispute that plaintiff fell. However, plaintiff cannot establish that there was anything on the floor for a sufficient period of time to provide notice to Safeway of any dangerous condition. Plaintiff concedes that she has no information as to how long any substance may have been present on the floor prior to her fall or how it came to be on the floor.
Safeway performed routine inspections of the floor where plaintiff fell prior to the fall. The floor was last inspected at 8:33 a.m., just 7 to 12 minutes prior to plaintiff’s fall.
