Jason T. Katz Successful in Obtaining Summary Judgment on Liability

Lewis Johs partner Jason T. Katz successfully moved for summary judgment and dismissal of the plaintiff’s complaint as well as all cross-claims asserted against his client in this slip and fall case on the grounds that plaintiff could not, as a matter of law, establish that defendant owed a duty to the plaintiff pursuant to the Court of Appeals holding in Espinal v Melville Snow Contractors. Moreover, the Court also found that the parties could not establish that the defendant’s actions caused or created a defective or hazardous condition such that same were a proximate cause of the plaintiff’s accident.
