Florida Appeals Court Says Seminole Tribe Immune From Slip-And-Fall Claim

(July 28, 2016, 4:19 PM EDT) -- WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Seminole Tribe of Florida has sovereign immunity from a woman’s personal injury claim against the tribe stemming from a slip-and-fall accident at the tribe’s casino because the tribe showed that there was no enforceable resolution or ordinance with a waiver of immunity in place in 2009 when the accident happened, a Florida appeals court held July 27 (Seminole Tribe of Florida v. Delores Schinneller, No. 4D15-1704, Fla. App., 4th Dist.; 2016 Fla. App. LEXIS 11411).
