DSB was successful in moving for Summary Judgment in Supreme Court, New York County on behalf of owners of a condominium unit in a high-rise building who were sued by a tenant relative to theft of jewelry from the unit.  The Court determined that the owners of the unit provided appropriate minimum security via a deadbolt lock on the single entrance to the unit, which plaintiffs had failed to engage. The court further determined that defendants were not on notice of any pattern of burglaries within the high-rise building that might have given rise to a need for greater security measures for their tenants.
