(New York, NY)- BMM Of Counsel, Jason Riemer, and Executive Partner, Suzanne Halbardier obtained a dismissal for a client after filing a motion for summary judgment. After reviewing the motion filed by the firm, plaintiff’s counsel conceded they would not succeed and agreed to a dismissal.
Plaintiff alleged that he was exposed to asbestos at a powerhouse where he performed repairs. He alleged exposure to equipment at the facility because of others working in his presence. While he claimed that our client had equipment present at the site, the firm conducted extensive research from publicly available records to demonstrate that we did not sell or ship equipment to plaintiff’s worksite. The client also submitted proof that it did not ship any equipment to plaintiff’s worksite.
After submitting the motion, we were contacted by plaintiff’s counsel. Having reviewed the documents submitted in support of our motion, counsel acknowledged that we would likely succeed at summary judgment. A dismissal was signed in our client’s favor, thus avoiding a lengthy and costly trial.
