Bleakley Platt & Schmidt, LLP Client Empire City Casino Granted Summary Judgment

October 2012

On October 3, 2012, Bronx County Supreme Court Justice Mark Friedlander granted defendant Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway’s summary judgment motion and dismissed plaintiff’s negligence claim in Louis Jacobs v. Yonkers Raceway Corporation, Index No.: 304947/09.  Plaintiff alleged that as a result of falling while exiting a Yonkers Raceway shuttle bus due to an alleged protrusion across the edge of the bus doorway she sustained debilitating injuries.  The Court dismissed the claim as plaintiff failed to introduce evidence of any defect.  Bleakley Platt & Schmidt, LLP partner Vincent W. Crowe successfully represented Yonkers Raceway in the case.
