DSB was successful in moving for summary judgment in an action for personal injuries on behalf of a subcontractor. Plaintiff sustained injuries as a result of a construction worker vacuuming debris that blew into her face on May 31, 2016. The Supreme Court, Bronx County, determined that DSB established its prima facie entitlement to judgment as a matter of law by demonstrating that the subcontractor did not perform any work at the subject store before the accident, and was contracted to perform work on or about September 12, 2016. The Court granted DSB’s motion for summary judgment and dismissed plaintiff’s complaint.
