Defense Achieves Dismissal of Claims Against University

The defense prevailed on a motion to dismiss on behalf of a distinguished Roman Catholic university. The plaintiff, a temporary staffing worker assigned to work at the university, alleged personal injuries as a result of a slip and fall in the cafeteria. The defense highlighted inconsistencies in the plaintiff’s workers’ compensation testimony compared to the allegations in his complaint and discovery responses. The plaintiff’s extensive and ongoing criminal history was also uncovered, in addition to the discovery of various anti-American posts on his social media accounts -- factors that plaintiff’s counsel conceded affected the case. After oral argument, the Judge granted the motion to dismiss the university.
