Marcin Kurzatkowski Prevails On Appeal In First Department

December 23, 2015

On December 22, 2015, Marcin Kurzatkowski prevailed on appeal in the First Department in the case of Mantilla v. Riverdale Equities, Ltd., Index No. 307162/2009.  The plaintiff claims that she slipped and fell on snow and ice on the public sidewalk in front of a bank branch leased by our client, one of the defendants/third-party plaintiffs.  The defendant/third-party plaintiff made a claim for contractual indemnification against the third-party defendant, who agreed to perform snow removal services and subcontracted that work to another company, which never cleared the sidewalk because it was given the wrong address.  The First Department affirmed the trial court’s ruling that the third-party defendant was not entitled to dismissal of the contractual indemnification claim.
