Inference Stacking – Road Construction Contractor

Eric Peterson obtained a summary judgment in favor of a prominent road construction contractor in a recent case brought in Palm Beach County, Florida. The Circuit Court ruled that the Plaintiff could not “stack inferences” where there was no direct evidence of negligence against the road construction contractor. Plaintiff’s case relied solely on circumstantial evidence and could not proceed on “inference stacking” based on circumstantial evidence.
