Home Inspector Wrongful DeathKen Waterway and Kelsey Black obtained a summary judgment for their client in a high profile wrongful death lawsuit in Miami. In the case of Sloan v. Pentair et al. (11th Judicial Circuit Court, case no. 14-16276), Waterway Black represented a home inspector who was one of many defendants sued for negligence following a tragic accident in which a child was fatally shocked in his family’s swimming pool.

The accident occurred in April 2014; given that the home inspector’s only contact with the property occurred in 2009, Waterway Black developed a record and summary judgment argument that the plaintiffs could not prove duty or causation as a matter of law.

Ken Waterway presented the motion for summary judgment in court on November 6, 2015, and on the basis of the duty and causation arguments Judge Jose Rodriguez entered summary judgment in favor of Waterway Black’s client.
