Jason Sanker recently filed and won a motion for summary judgment in a case he was defending in the Superior Court of Gilmer County, Georgia. Jason represented a land owner who was sued by a married couple. The plaintiffs alleged that Jason’s client negligently allowed a horse to escape his property, causing an automobile collision which injured the plaintiffs. Jason’s motion successfully argued that the land owner was not liable because another defendant actually owned the horse and had taken responsibility for maintaining it. The court agreed with Jason and dismissed his client from the lawsuit.
