David M. Grill and Evan Schieber successfully defended a judgment of liability on appeal. Rivkin Radler represented the plaintiff/respondent in the action entitled Extell 601 West 137th Street LLC (“Extell”) v Vinegar Hill Baking Company and Sven Oeheme. The Supreme Court granted Extell’s motion for summary judgment on the issue of liability as to defendant Sven Oehme’s obligations pursuant to certain guarantees wherein the defendant guaranteed the financial obligations of a commercial tenant. In a unanimous decision, the Appellate Division, First Department affirmed the order granting liability crediting Rivkin Radler’s arguments that the guarantor presented no viable defenses as to liability. The Appellate Division referred the matter to inquest for an assessment of damages.
