DSB was successful in moving for summary judgment on behalf of a municipality on Long Island. Plaintiff was injured while riding her bicycle along a bike route. The Supreme Court, Suffolk County, determined that the municipality did not owe a duty of care to the plaintiff because the municipality neither owned, controlled nor maintained the accident location. The Court further concluded that the municipality affirmatively established its entitlement to judgment as a matter of law and dismissed the complaint and cross-claims asserted against the municipality.
