SUMMARY JUDGMENT – KINGS COUNTY

December 23, 2014

Altomare v. Auto Star, Inc., et al. 

Our firm successfully obtained summary judgment, dismissing claims against our client in this toxic tort case in Kings County.  Plaintiff allegedly contracted acute myeloid leukemia as a result of exposure to benzene containing compounds while working as an automotive mechanic.  We obtained summary judgment, prior to any defendant’s deposition, by showing plaintiff could not establish our client’s involvement in the sale, manufacture or distribution of the allegedly offending products.
