John Fleming defended a laundromat business, in a case involving a customer who slipped on tracked in water from ice, slush, and snow at the entrance way to the business.  The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of John’s client, based on the Illinois doctrine involving a “natural accumulation” of ice and snow.  That law holds that there is generally no duty when an injured person suffers a slip and fall on rain, snow, or ice that naturally falls from the sky.
