Notes / Description: 

Schulman sued the defendant for $7500 damages. The defendant operated a store on Market Street in which it served food in a lunch room or luncheonette. Plaintiff described the chairs at their tables as being very unstable and their floors slippery, causing many people to tip over in them. As plaintiff stood up from one such chair, it slipped out from under her and she fell to the floor, injuring her spine and making her bladder fall (causing frequent urination).
