Lindsay v. Eccles Hotel Co

In Lindsay v. Eccles Hotel Co., 3 Utah 2d 364, 284 P.2d 477 (Utah 1955), the plaintiff slipped and fell on a small quantity of water on the floor in the defendant's coffee shop. The Court held that the plaintiff could not recover under a temporary unsafe condition theory because "there was no evidence as to how the water got onto the floor, by whom it was deposited, exactly when it arrived there or that the defendant had knowledge of its presence."
