Case Synopsis

The Court considered whether the “mode of operation” approach to premises liability, under which the plaintiff does not have to prove defendant’s knowledge of a particular hazardous condition if the plaintiff can prove that the nature of the defendant’s business tends to create a substantial risk of the type of harm the plaintiff suffered, extends beyond the self-service context to sit-down restaurants, and whether the district court abused its discretion in excluding certain evidence.
