1 Martinez 7871/ Legal Writing 604 /Assignment #9 Legal Writing 604 Assignment # 9 Martinez 7871 Pam drove to Diner, a local restaurant, at about 5:00 p.m. When she got out of her car in Diner’s parking lot, she was robbed at gunpoint by an unknown assailant, who took her purse and her cellular phone. Pam later discovered that she was not the first victim of a crime in the Diner parking lot. In the past year, two other customers had been the victims of auto burglaries, which occurred while they were dining inside the restaurant. Diner put two video cameras in the parking lot, but did not hire security guards to patrol the parking lot. As the robber began to flee, Pam wanted to get help and decided to run into Diner to use one of its telephones. She hoped that by calling “911” quickly, the robber could be apprehended and her property returned. As Pam ran across the parking lot she tripped in a large pothole and fell and broke her arm. Diner had not repaired the pothole, although customers had been complaining about it for weeks. All of the complaints were from customers who had not spotted the pothole while driving, hit it, and worried that their tires would be knocked out of alignment. The pothole was readily visible to pedestrians. Had Pam not been so panicked by the robbery, she likely would have noticed the problem and avoided it.
