Congratulations to our partner, Marie Castronuovo, on winning summary judgment in two different cases for Pritchard Industries. The first case, Mamadou Camara v. Boston Properties and Pritchard Industries, was venued in NY County. It involved a slip and fall on a loading dock ramp at the building owned by Boston Properties where Pritchard was the janitorial service provider. The second case, Theresa Nuovo v. 100 Wall Realty v. Pritchard Industries, was venued in Westchester County, and also involved a slip and fall. The plaintiff fell on weather mats in the lobby of 100 Wall Street during an active rain event. The evidence revealed that the lobby mats were in place, but the plaintiff argued they were insufficient and improperly configured with a two-foot space between two mats that caused her to fall when she stepped off one mat to get to the other.
