DSB won a summary judgment motion on behalf of a Queens County property owner. Plaintiff injured herself when she slipped and fell on an ice condition that existed on the sidewalk near the property line of the owner’s property and an adjacent property. The property owner established, through use of a surveyor’s testimony, that he did not own the property abutting the fall location on the public sidewalk and he did not maintain or cause to be maintained the area of the sidewalk where the ice condition existed.
