CG&P Obtains Dismissal of Claims against New York City Church

CG&P has secured dismissal of a negligence action against a historic Church located in Greenwich Village in New York City. The plaintiff alleged that she was caused to suffer serious injuries after tripping and falling on a shunt board (a board used to cover electrical wires) on the public sidewalk adjacent to the Church. The shunt board was installed by co-defendant – a prominent New York City utility company. The Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, held that dismissal of plaintiff’s complaint was warranted as against the Church as the Church made a prima facie showing that it had neither actual nor constructive notice of the allegedly defective shunt board. The Court also dismissed all cross-claims asserted by the defendant utility company. The case was handled by CG&P Associate, Christopher Rogers.
