Attorneys for defendants in a premises liability suit are arguing over the state in which the case should be heard. The lawsuit was brought by a man who was loading milk into carts supplied by Dean Foods. He says that he was pushing a loaded cart up a plywood ramp at an Aldi grocery store in West Plains, Missouri, when it hit a nail and turned over, causing him suffer serious injuries when he fell.
The man claims that the ramp was defective. He is suing both Aldi Inc. and Dean Foods. Aldi is arguing that the man wasn't paying attention and that they have no responsibility for his injuries.
