Summary Judgment-New York County

Ravallese v. JMED Holdings
In Ravallese v. JMED Holdings, plaintiff sustained significant eye injuries in a fight with unknown individuals outside Pacha Nightclub. Plaintiff sued the club owner as well as our client Salvus Security, the company hired to provide security services to the venue alleging negligent security.

At the close of discovery, Wendy Jennings moved for summary judgment arguing that Salvus Secuirty owed no duty to the plaintiff as the incident occurred on a public street beyond the scope of the venue and that Salvus could not have breached any duty owed to plaintiff because the assault occurred after plaintiff voluntarily left the venue and he never notified security of any prior problems with these individuals while inside the club. The Court agreed and granted the motion dismissing plaintiff’s claims as well as the cross claims of the club owner.
