Spilled tomato juice case set for trial

By From page A4 | April 24, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A September trial is set in the case of a woman who sued after she said she slipped on tomato juice on the floor at the Mexico Meat Market along North Texas Street, and fell.

Frances Robinson entered the market Aug. 1, 2012, to buy produce, according to court documents. No sign or warning cautioned customers about the wet floor, according to the lawsuit.

An ambulance took Robinson to Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center, where she was treated for injuries.

Robinson seeks less than $25,000 in her lawsuit.

    Free lettuce for life. Toss in a bottle of hot sauce.

    Why would there be a sign cautioning people about spilled tomato juice? Clearly a customer spilled the juice, and didn't tell an employee. I think it was an oversight, and the woman needs to accept that it was an accident, and pay closer attention while walking.
