Another Successful Summary Judgment Motion to End the Year
Congratulations to Craig Bienstock, who secured a well-earned victory in New York County Supreme Court obtaining dismissal of all claims against our clients, a major Manhattan hospital and employed physician. Plaintiff’s claims arose from an alleged failure to properly perform surgical removal of the plaintiff’s orbital plates around his left eye, thus causing the patient to suffer deformities of his eye with damage to the surrounding nerves, muscles and structures.
In its 12-page decision, the Court agreed that treatment rendered by our clients was entirely appropriate and within the standard of care at all times, and that the plaintiff’s attorney failed to raise a triable issue of fact sufficient to defeat the motion.
The underlying motion papers were written by Craig and the motion was successfully argued by Jason Corrado.
