CEJ Poultry Inc. v. Calderone,  O.J. No. 5968 (S.C.J.)
Date of Decision: January 09, 2009
We successfully brought a motion for summary judgment securing judgment in a subrogated action arising out of a fire loss. The fire was caused by a visitor to the house who left the burning pot on a stove without ensuring the element had been turned off. This resulted in a fire. The defendant admitted seeing the pot on the stove but believed she had turned off the element before leaving the room. The motion judge held that in light of her admissions there was no issue requiring trial as to her liability. He granted judgment accordingly.
