Mike Flake Wins Summary Judgment In Kings County!

Mike Flake obtained summary judgment in Brooklyn where the plaintiff, a pedestrian, argued that the defendant snow removal contractor was liable for her slip and fall on an icy sidewalk adjacent to co-defendant landowner’s property. The owner argued that the contractor breached its snow removal contract by failing to remove snow and ice in a timely manner prior to plaintiff’s fall. Mike successfully argued that the contractor owed no duty of care to the plaintiff and otherwise did not launch a force or instrument of harm in its snow removal efforts a week prior to the accident. The Court also found that certified weather records conclusively proved that the contractor did not breach its contract with the owner.

Congratulations to Michael Flake who successfully argued our MSJ in Kings County. It is refreshing to get a favorable decision, especially in Brooklyn. Excellent job Mike!
