Appellate Division Affirms Directed Verdict in Favor of Lewis Johs Client

Plaintiff brought a personal injury action in Kings County after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds in an assault in a nightclub. Plaintiff sued the nightclub and the company that allegedly provided security for the premises, which was represented by Lewis Johs. The nightclub settled before trial and the case proceeded against the security company. Lewis Johs Senior Counsel Martin Rowe represented the security company at trial. At the close of plaintiff’s case Mr. Rowe moved for a directed verdict, arguing that the plaintiff hadn’t met his burden of proof. The trial court agreed and directed a verdict in favor of the defendant. An appeal ensued and the Appellate Division, Second Department recently affirmed the trial court’s ruling.
