A final judgment has been entered in litigation brought by Corniece Young, who filed a slip-and-fall lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores. 

As previously reported, the suit was filed March 12, 2012, in Jefferson County District Court and also named Marguerite Collins, a Wal-Mart manager, as a defendant.

The lawsuit alleged that on March 12, 2010, Young was shopping at the Port Arthur Wal-Mart when she slipped on a slippery substance.

Young accused the defendants of failing to inspect and maintain the premises and warn shoppers of the hazardous condition.

She was suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Houston attorney James Lassiter III represents her.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is assigned to the case.
