Another bizarre torts question, but of course this happens to someone. They slip on a tomato. They fall and get hurt. And they want to sue!

The legal question at issue, as per Torts doctrine: did the person have ‘constructive notice’? If they did, then they shouldn’t be able to sue successfully for someone else to pay for their harm.

I made this drawing while studying up for my Torts final at Stanford Law School.
