    Featured Case

    Tenant Assaulted by Intruder; Questions of Fact About Foreseeability, Adequacy of Safety Precautions, and Proximate Cause Required Reversal of Grant of Summary Judgment to Defendants

    The First Department, reversing Supreme Court, determined there were questions of fact precluding summary judgment in favor of the defendants in this action stemming from the assault of plaintiff-tenant by an intruder. The intruder entered the building by "piggy-backing" on an entering tenant. There was evidence this particular intruder had entered the building the same way on other occasions when he had harassed and assaulted women. Gonzalez v. Riverbay Corp., 2017 N.Y. Slip Op. 04042, 1st Dept 5-18-17

  • About CasePrepPlus

    New York appellate courts release, on average, between 150 and 200 decisions per week. The CasePrepPlus service summarizes the most significant decisions, which include substantive discussions of the facts and the law, into one-paragraph summaries, which are prefaced by succinct headings, allowing the reader to quickly decide whether a case is of interest. Each summary is linked to the full decision. Keeping up with the decisions released the week before, a process which could easily take an individual attorney numerous hours every week, takes only minutes with CasePrepPlus.

    Summaries are written by Rochester-based attorney Bruce Freeman. For his bio, click here.
