Cash v. East Coast Property Management, Inc., 7 A.3d 484 (Del. 2010)

The Delaware Supreme Court affirmed the trial court's grant of summary judgment in favor of defendant. This case arose from a slip and fall on ice at an apartment complex. The Court found that the evidence did not support plaintiff's claim that the ice on the sidewalk formed from a previous storm, melted and re-froze, where there was no precipitation during the time frame alleged, temperature was well above the freezing point on the day before the accident and plaintiff admitted she did not see any snow or ice. Further, Court found that the continuous storm doctrine applied and no duty was voluntarily assumed where defendant had a policy of removing snow and ice during a storm.
