Another Win for BMMP

Angelo J. Bongiorno and Alexys M. Carter of Bongiorno, Montiglio, Mitchell & Palmieri, PLLC were successful in obtaining dismissal for our client, Greater Jamaica Development Corp. in the case of Celso-Lasose v. Greater Jamaica Development Corp., et al., Queens County, Justice Denis J. Butler.  The plaintiff, 49 years old at the time of the alleged accident, was a construction worker who was involved in a work-related accident in July 2018. The plaintiff commenced an action claiming negligence and violations of the NYS Labor Law Sections 200, 240(1) and 241(6)  Plaintiff alleged inter alia that Greater Jamaica Development Corp. was the owner and general contractor at the time of the plaintiff’s accident. He further alleged that Greater Jamaica Development Corp. violated Labor Law Section 200, 240(1) and 241(6). Our office reached out to plaintiff’s counsel on numerous occasions and provided documentation evidencing that our client had sold the property three years prior to the plaintiff’s accident. Plaintiff refused to discontinue the action against Greater Jamaica Development Corp. and motion practice ensued. We argued that our client did not own the property at the time of the accident and is not a proper party to the action. That motion was granted by Judge Butler dismissing the plaintiff’s claims and all cross-claims against our client.
