This is pretty insane...
Shouldn't Florida law and thus Florida courts be at issue here and not New York? This occurred in Florida. I would be totally surprised if this woman doesn't win something, given she is in New York, but I could totally see Costco winning an appeal in a federal court. This is insane.NEW YORK (Reuters) - A 74-year-old woman who said she was injured after falling in a Costco store in Florida beat back the retailer's effort to move the case to that state because it was too much trouble to defend itself in New York.
Theresa Danza sued Costco in her hometown of Brooklyn, New York, claiming she was hospitalized for spinal and shoulder trauma and needed months of treatment by a chiropractor after a tumble in a Costco in North Miami, Florida, on January 24, 2009.
