Man injured in fall on wet floor in lobby cannot prove owner had notice

Jeffrey Mutual sued after suffering injuries in a fall while traversing the lobby of the "Top of Troy."  His claim that the highly-waxed floor was wet and unreasonably slippery was dismissed, however, because he could not prove that the operator of the facility knew of the dangerous condition.  He was unable to present testimony of direct knowledge by the employees, and the court held that while his theory was consistent with the facts, it was merely speculation without adequate proof.
