Plaintiff was represented by St. Louis attorney, W. Morris Taylor who alleged that the Elevator Company had failed to properly inspect, maintain and repair the elevator and that Bemiston Tower, Inc., the owners, failed to warn elevator users of the car’s uneven stopping and failed to properly maintain the elevator.
