**** What is the purpose of the deposition?

After eating them, she looked at them more closely and they were filled with maggots. She vomited, and left work early feeling sick. She asked me if I would take the case.

I am a California lawyer with offices in Los Angeles and Orange County. Your friend may have a valid claim against the mall if the mall is legally responsible for her fall. Why did she fall? How did she fall?
If you were on a jury, and a person like your friend was asking for money from the mall, would you award money?
The law states that the mall owners are negligent if they fail to use reasonable care to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition. In deciding what is...
