Another Victory for MSZL&M’s New York Office!

Another Victory for MSZL&M’s New York Office!

Allen Kohn from MSZL&M’s New York office won summary judgment on behalf of a large property owner.  Plaintiff alleged that he suffered personal injuries due to a hole in the concrete floor.  The hole was purportedly created by the property owner when it performed construction work in the area.  The case’s venue was slow-moving New York State Supreme Court, Kings County.

MSZL&M fast traced discovery and within eight month of assignment, filed a motion for summary judgment.  The motion was based upon the property owner being—at the time of the alleged incident—an “out-of-possession” owner and not responsible for making any repairs to the premises.  Instead, MSZL&M argued that the tenant is liable to plaintiff for the alleged lack of repairs by the property owner.  The court granted the motion and dismissed all allegations against the property owner.
