Melody Jolly obtained a voluntary dismissal with prejudice of a premises liability action against a municipality in which plaintiff sought damages for injuries suffered when he slipped on ice allegedly created by defendant’s failure to maintain a fire hydrant. Plaintiff’s attorney voluntarily dismissed the action with prejudice after the defense filed a motion for summary judgment and supporting memorandum, arguing that the City did not owe plaintiff a duty because it was not the fire hydrant that created the dangerous condition and also arguing that plaintiff was contributorily negligent in failing to take precautions to ensure his own safety.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
