APPELLATE VICTORY – SECOND DEPARTMENT (KINGS COUNTY)

April 1, 2015

Robinson v. Nicholas Limoncelli, et al.

In the Supreme Court, Kings County, we were granted a directed verdict at trial, at the close of plaintiff’s case.  The co-defendants then settled for $1.1 million.  Plaintiff appealed the directed verdict.  Based on our appellate argument, the Second Department affirmed dismissal on directed verdict of spinal injury claim in Kings County in which plaintiff alleged to have tripped and fallen on a sign installed seven months earlier by our client.  The Second Department found there was no direct evidence of negligent installation and that plaintiff failed to show it more likely than not that the client’s negligence caused the accident.
