Summary Judgment- Supreme Court, Kings County

Scalfani v. Thames Street Transfer Station, Allied Waste Industries and BFI Waste Systems of New Jersey, Inc.
In Scalfani, plaintiff was employed by an electrician who was hired by our clients to repair a pump in the floor of their transfer station. Plaintiff alleged that he suffered from an electric shock due to a stray electrical current while on the premises. At the close of discovery, Lucia DiChiara moved for summary judgment, arguing that plaintiff could not establish that he suffered an electric shock or that our clients had notice of any stray electrical currents on the premises. The Court agreed and dismissed plaintiff’s complaint.
