Woman loses claim she was injured by box of Frisbees at Walgreens
Terri Moore, a 52-year old woman, claimed that she was permanently disabled when a box of Frisbees fell on her head. She never filed a witness list, however, so she could not present any medical testimony in support of her claim. No one asked for a jury trial, so the trial judge heard the case and ultimately determined that Moore's story was not credible.
The judge found that between Moore's lack of credibility, the facts relating to the height and content of the shelves, and the lack of medical support, Moore had not proved her case. Moore appealed alleging several technical errors regarding the admission of evidence. The Court of Appeals rejected her appeal since the appeal failed to address the bottom-line ruling by the lower court that Moore had not proved causation.
