  • Prevailed on summary judgment for our property owner client’s contractual indemnification and breach of contract claims in a construction-related action pending in Bronx Supreme Court; plaintiff sought a multi-million-dollar recovery for damages sounding in, inter alia, violations of New York Labor Law Sections 200 and 240(1) based on plaintiff’s alleged fall from a purportedly defective fire escape ladder
  • Defeated construction-related New York Labor Law action in Bronx County, New York, against plaintiff’s mid-discovery New York Labor Law 240(1) summary judgment motion and convinced the Court to deny plaintiff’s summary judgment motion in its entirety; proffered expert proof to show case theory was not grounded in fact or science, and that potential non-party testimony could altogether rebut plaintiff’s expert’s opinion in the first instance
