Attorneys Waller & Simpler Obtain Dismissal of Claims Against Premises Owner in Wrongful Death Case


Attorneys Chris Waller and Miland Simpler recently obtained a dismissal of all claims against a premises owner, in a wrongful death case that involved a minor drowning in their client’s pool.


The Court granted the relief sought in a 12(b)(6) motion based upon arguments and authorities asserting that the complaint failed to articulate any duty as a matter of law. The case was pending in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County.


Chris Waller is a partner in the Montgomery office and serves on the firm’s Executive Committee. Miland Simpler is an associate in the Montgomery office and practices in the areas of civil defense litigation and insurance litigation, with concentrations in auto liability, construction defect, products liability, and premises liability litigation.
