Will Bryan, the lawyer listed on court documents for the city of Myrtle Beach, could not be reached by phone Thursday. City Attorney Tom Ellenburg declined to comment. Premises liability cases, where one party sues after being injured on the property of another party, almost always end in dismissal or a settlement. Of the four premises liability cases that closed this year where Myrtle Beach was a defendant, all ended in dismissal or after mediation, according to court records. About 98 percent of all cases are settled, Connell said. Mark Kruea, a spokesman for Myrtle Beach, declined to identify how much a trial might cost the city and said city officials have a policy of not commenting on pending litigation.
