It has been a big two weeks for Kroger -- winning two cases before the Texas Supreme Court in just as many weeks. On Friday, the Texas Supreme Court issued this per curiam opinion in Kroger Co. v. Elwood. The Court held that a courtesy clerk could not recover damages from injuries he suffered after a customer shut her vehicle door on the Kroger employee's hand while he was transferring items from a grocery cart into the customer's vehicle.
