Court dismisses Labor Law claims against client.
We secured a dismissal of all claims against our client in a case involving personal injuries stemming from a slip and fall involving a ladder. We moved for summary judgment, seeking dismissal of the plaintiff’s Labor Law claims against our client. We convinced the court that the evidence to date did not establish a legal basis to apply Labor Law protections to this incident, and we established that the plaintiff was not a protected worker and was not engaged in a protected activity. Following oral argument, the court dismissed all Labor Law claims against our client.
