Michigan Appeals Court: Woman Should Have Anticipated Obvious Risk Of A Dark Theater

Oct 12, 2017

The Michigan appeals court has dropped the curtain on a lawsuit by a woman who said she was ushered to the wrong seat at the Fox Theater, fell and hit her head. 

Betty Davis and friends from church had tickets to a Tyler Perry show. They were escorted to their seats by an usher but discovered that the seats were wrong. 

Davis says she fell forward and hit her head on a marble wall. But the appeals court says Davis should have anticipated the "open and obvious" risk of a dark theater.
