Summary Judgment Granted

On September 8, 2016 our office won summary judgment dismissing the summons and complaint of the plaintiff together with all cross-claims. John F. Janowski prepared a detailed motion and memorandum of law for dismissal of the personal injury lawsuit involving a slip and fall on the public sidewalk adjacent to Duane Reade retail pharmacy.  The motion was supported by an affidavit from the facility’s asset manager for Duane Reade/Walgreens laying the foundation for the lease and affirming the fact that Duane did not hire any contractor to perform sidewalk repairs, nor did it create the allegedly dangerous condition.  Marie I. Goutzounis argued our motion before the Honorable Wayne Saitta in Supreme Court, Kings County.  The motion was vigorously opposed by plaintiff’s counsel, Souren A. Israelyan.
