- Artis obtained a dismissal of a wage claim and further obtained dismissal of the appeal. In that case, plaintiffs filed a wage claim in federal court. The case was voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff and was then refiled in state court. Artis successfully argued that tolling was voided after the voluntary dismissal and the subsequent refiling of the lawsuit was therefore untimely. The matter was dismissed with prejudice and plaintiffs filed an appeal. However, Artis successfully argued that the appeal, too, was untimely.
- Artis obtained summary judgment due to no duty owed. In that case, plaintiff was at a senior citizen facility when he was attacked by a third party. Artis successfully argued that the duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of persons on one’s premises does not extend to unforeseeable or unanticipated criminal acts by a third person.
