(New York, NY)- Associate, Ashley Johnston, secured a dismissal on behalf of our client, a supplier of home renovation materials, in the Supreme Court of New York, Chemung County.
Plaintiff’s counsel contended that our client supplied the materials which caused the plaintiff’s asbestos-related mesothelioma. After conducting the deposition of the plaintiff’s son, Ashley used both client resources and publicly available records to develop our strategy and prepare a summary judgment motion, arguing that the plaintiff’s son was simply incorrect in his recollection. Rather than oppose our motion, the plaintiff’s attorney agreed to a dismissal of our client.
Given the jury verdicts in mesothelioma cases, plaintiff’s agreement to a voluntary dismissal was a significant victory for BMM and its client.
