Litigation/Appellate Strategy & Advocacy Group Obtained Reversal in Order Dismissing Our Client's Claims in a Third-Party Products Liability Action Arising From an Elevator Accident
Our Litigation/Appellate Strategy & Advocacy Group today obtained a reversal in the Appellate Division, Second Department, of the Supreme Court's (Anzalone, J. [Nassau Co.]) order dismissing our client's indemnification and contribution claims in a third-party products liability action arising from an elevator accident. See Carter v. Nouveau Industries, et al., __ A.D.3d __ (2d Dep't, Oct. 7, 2020). The decision is actually one of a pair of reversals of two different (but related) lower court decisions handed down today in the same matter.
These appellate reversals were truly a coordinated team effort with our colleague Sean Prendergast of Hannum Feretic Prendergast & Merlino nicely briefing and arguing the issues raised by the Supreme Court’s original decision, and our group handling the appeal from the Court’s subsequent related decision. Kudos to Jonathan Shaub, who argued the appeal, and drafted the briefs with Tim Capowski, Chris Theobalt, Joe Beglane, and Jen Graw.
