Woman loses lawsuit appeal
DETROIT (AP) — The Michigan appeals court has dropped the curtain on a lawsuit by a woman who said she was ushered to the wrong seat at a Detroit theater, fell and hit her head. Betty Davis ended up missing the Tyler Perry show at the Fox Theatre. Now she’s lost her case in a 3-0 decision released Wednesday. Davis and friends from church had tickets to a Perry show. They were escorted to their seats by an usher but discovered that the seats were wrong. Davis fell and hit her head on a marble wall. She accused the usher of creating the “dangerous condition.” But the appeals court says Davis should have anticipated the “open and obvious risk” of a dark theater.
