DSB won summary judgment on a Labor Law secs. 200, 240, and 241 action in the Supreme Court, Nassau County. Plaintiff fell approximately 16-18 feet from an extension ladder while painting the interior of our client’s home. The court granted the motion and dismissed Labor Law 240 and 241 claims based on the statutory homeowner’s exception. The Court also dismissed the Labor Law 200 claim because the accident arose from the means and methods of the work, and the defendants had no supervision or control over the plaintiff as he performed the work. Prior to dismissal, plaintiff’s demand was $1,000,000.
