Larry Centola's jury verdict in Moulds v. Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District and SMG was recently affirmed by the Appeals Court.
In December 2020, Lydie Moulds was awarded $1,517,000 by a New Orleans jury for a mild traumatic brain injury that she suffered when she tripped over a metal rod in the Superdome parking lot while on her way to a Saints game. The Louisiana Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the judgment of the trial court. See Moulds v. Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District and SMG, 2021-CA-0503 (La. App. 4 Cir. 3/23/2022).
The suit was against SMG, the company that manages the Superdome, the Smoothie King Center, and all of its parking lots. SMG argued that it did not have constructive notice of the defect. The jury and the court disagreed, finding that SMG both had constructive notice of the defect and had a reasonable amount of time to repair the defect.
