VBPNP Team Secures Summary Judgment Win

Neil Mascolo and Nicole Salerno were successful in obtaining summary judgment in a NYLL case venued in Supreme Court, Kings County. Plaintiff, an employee of one of the subcontractors fell to the floor below due to a collapsed floor. The claims against our client, a carpentry contractor, included allegations that they were responsible for covering any openings. During the course of discovery, Neil and Nicole established that, not only did our client have no such responsibility, but that the proximate cause of the accident was the collapsed floor rather than the failure of any covering. The court agreed and after oral argument dismissed the third-party action against our client.
