1/18/18 Peterson vs. Forest City Ratner, et al.

Plaintiff claimed that he sustained serious injury on July 23, 2012 when a barricade fell on him. At the time of the accident, our client was assisting him in the removal of barricades. We were able to successfully argue that our client was not a Labor Law defendant. Further, we argued that there was no evidence of our client’s negligence, particularly in light of the fact that it was the plaintiff who actually directed, supervised and controlled the plaintiff’s work. The Court agreed and granted our motion for summary judgment dismissing all claims against our client as a matter of law.
