On December 19, 2014, David Gould, Lauren Garvey and Matthew Biondi won summary judgment dismissing the plaintiff’s complaint in James v. Claude, Index No. 9413/2013 (Supreme Court, Kings County). Our attorneys successfully argued that the issue of liability for the accident had been previously determined, and the defendant was found free from liability, following a trial in the case of Eveready Insurance Company a/s/o James v. Claude, Index No. CV-68105/11/BX (Civil Court, Bronx County). The Court granted summary judgment finding that the plaintiff was collaterally estopped from relitigating the issue of liability.
