Legal Alert | Johnson v. Liquor and Cannabis Board: More Than Just A Fun Case Name
POSTED SEPTEMBER 15, 2023
ABOUT THIS ALERT
Eddy Silverman of Williams Kastner explains how Johnson went from a “bad” case to a good case. Johnson largely abrogated the notice requirement in premises liability cases, thereby divesting defendants of a major weapon, but in the process has seemingly ushered in an affirmed appreciation for the requirement of “unreasonable” danger to sustain such cases in Washington State, allowing for more viable summary judgment arguments in this vein and largely taking the place of “lack of notice” as a defense.
