Court Dismisses Claims Agains Municipality

Obtained summary judgment and the dismissal of all claims against a municipality. ‚ÄčThe case involved a motor vehicle and pedestrian collision on a state road that was within the municipality and was undergoing extensive reconstruction. The plaintiff and co-defendants maintained that the construction site, being within the borough, was under its control as the borough was allegedly responsible for closing the sidewalks during construction and forcing pedestrian traffic into the street. Following discovery and a motion, the court dismissed all claims against our client on the determination that the claim against it fell outside of the Streets and Sidewalks exception under the Pennsylvania Political Subdivisions Tort Claims Act.¬†
