NYC Attorney Achieves Motion to Dismiss in New York Supreme Court

Litchfield Cavo attorney Dana M. Ricci prevailed on a motion to dismiss in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Onondaga County on a matter involving the use of cosmetic talcum powder that allegedly was contaminated with asbestos caused plaintiff’s mesothelioma.

Dana’s motion to dismiss the case was granted by Judge DelConte based upon a finding that the Court lacked personal jurisdiction over our client, an international mineral corporation. Our attorneys successfully argued that jurisdiction was improper under New York’s Long-Arm Statute and constitutional Due Process.

Dana concentrates her practice on toxic tort, asbestos litigation and insurance coverage, and handles matters involving construction litigation, site accidents, premises and products liability. For additional information on Litchfield Cavo’s toxic tort practice, click here.
