Mark Hanna secured a reversal of the trial court’s order denying summary judgment to the distributor of a commercial meat grinder machine and cheese grater attachment, in a matter involving a restaurant worker who had several fingers severed in a workplace accident. The Appellate panel was convinced to reverse course and dismiss the complaint against the equipment manufacturer, because it was persuaded that the risk posed by the sharp rotating blades in the cheese grater attachment was open and obvious to the injured worker.
