DSB was successful in defending a Suffolk County school district in an appeal to the Appellate Division, Second Department, in a lawsuit brought by a person who claims to have been injured on a defective sidewalk at an elementary school.  The appellate court unanimously reversed the lower court’s decision on DSB’s motion and awarded summary judgment to the school finding that the alleged condition on the sidewalk was too trivial to be actionable.  The Appellate Division dismissed Plaintiff’s Complaint in its entirety.
