David Metzger Obtains Summary Judgment in Electric Shock Case

Senior Counsel David Metzger obtained summary judgment on a Bronx County Supreme Court case involving an electric shock and subsequent injuries alleged to have been caused by exposed wiring during an intercom installation at a residential apartment building.  David successfully argued that the party and non-party deposition testimony,  as well as the authenticated computer records and work orders of the client intercom company and its subcontractor, demonstrated that although an inspection of the property was performed before the alleged incident, actual work on the system had not begun until days after the alleged incident. It was also argued that the plaintiff’s theory of liability was not supported by any expert or scientific basis. The court found that the plaintiff’s and co-defendant property owner’s proof in opposition was too speculative to raise a triable issue of fact.
