Dylan Braverman Obtains Reversal of Trial Court’s Order and Dismissal of Claims Against Prominent New York City Security Company

Senior Attorney, Dylan Braverman, obtained dismissal of all claims against a prominent New York City security company when the Appellate Division, First Department overturned the Trial Court’s Order and granted summary judgment. The defendant Security Company provides security at a landmark Meatpacking District Hotel, as well as its rooftop and ground floor bar/ lounge. Plaintiff was allegedly assaulted on New Year’s Eve, and brought claims against the hotel and the security company.  The Trial Court refused to dismiss, claiming that the jury needed to resolve whether or not the security company launched a force of harm resulting in the assault and injuries. However, The Appellate Division, First Department reversed the Order on the grounds that the security company owed plaintiff no duty of care and that the record was devoid of any evidence upon which a jury can determine that a force of harm was launched under New York law.
