Amy E. Bedell Obtains Dismissal on Summary Judgment Against Security Firm

Lewis Johs attorney Amy E. Bedell obtained summary dismissal of plaintiff’s complaint on behalf of a security firm in an action to recover for personal injuries the plaintiff allegedly sustained when she was physically assaulted by a fellow resident at a homeless shelter located in Manhattan.  In dismissing plaintiff’s complaint, the Court held, among other things, that the security firm, which provided unarmed security guards to the facility, did not owe the plaintiff a duty to protect her from physical harm.
