In an action commenced in the Unites States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, plaintiffs brought a suit seeking monetary damages and injunctive relief with respect to the residency of their father in the defendant assisted living facility. The Court granted our motion and dismissed the plaintiffs' complaint under Rule 12(b)(1) of the Federal Rules and Civil Procedure on the ground that the plaintiffs lacked Article III standing since they did not allege an injury-in-fact.
In an action for medical malpractice and wrongful death, it was alleged that the medical defendants were negligent in failing to timely diagnose and treat the decedent. CG&P moved for summary judgment to dismiss the plaintiff’s complaint on the grounds that there was no basis for direct liability or vicarious lability.
In an action for negligence and violations of the New York Public Health Law, it was alleged that CG&P’s client, an assisted living facility, violated the New York Public Health Law with respect to a resident who sustained multiple falls, one of which resulted in a hip fracture which required surgical repair. CG&P moved to dismiss the Public Health Law cause of action on the grounds that the statute is only applicable to claims against residential health care facilities, commonly known as nursing homes.
