Congratulations to Samantha E. Quinn for back to back victories, both resulting in dismissals for our clients, in the Second Department on November 9th!
In Li v. Joffee, et al, we prevailed in overturning the order of the Supreme Court, Queens County, which declared service on our client, a foreign resident, appropriate despite failure of the plaintiff to follow the procedural guidelines under CPLR 308(2). The action against our client has been dismissed.
In Wijesinghe v. Buna Vida, et al, the Second Department reversed the order of the Supreme Court, Kings County, which denied our motion for summary judgment. The Appellate Division found that plaintiff’s opposition to our motion was insufficient to raise a triable issue of fact as to proximate cause, and the action against our client is therefore dismissed.
