Supreme Court Will Review Prioleau v. Kentucky Fried Chicken, Inc.

The Supreme Court will review the decision of the Appellate Division in Prioleau v. Kentucky Fried Chicken, Inc., 434 N.J. Super. 558 (App. Div. 2014).  This appeal was as of right, since there was a dissenting opinion in the Appellate Division.  That court’s decision is discussed here.  The question presented, as phrased by the Supreme Court Clerk’s Office, is “Under the circumstances presented in this personal injury action, did defendants’ business practice or ‘mode of operation’ create the hazardous condition (i.e., a wet floor) such that plaintiff was relieved of proving that defendants had actual or constructive notice of the condition?”
