The firm successfully moved to dismiss a claim against a large Suffolk County school district alleging improper/insufficient supervision of students. Plaintiff, a high school student, claimed to have been injured in a gym locker room as the result of an altercation with several other boys. The Court held that the District established that adequate supervision was provided and that any perceived lack of supervision was not a proximate cause of plaintiff’s injuries, as he was a voluntary participant in the altercation.
