DeHaven Granted Summary Judgment in Favor of New York State Public High School Association and BOCES Section 8November 10, 2016 |
George DeHaven’s motion for summary judgment, in the case of Radtke v Long Island University et al, was granted in favor of our clients, New York State Public High Schools Athletic Association and BOCES Section 8. The case involved a fall on the bleachers at the Pratt Gymnasium at LIU-Post during a girls’ high school basketball playoff game. BOCES Section 8 entered into an agreement with LIU-Post to use the gym for the playoff games. The plaintiffs claimed that our clients, as well as the University, were negligent in the manner in which the bleachers were set up, and the failure to inspect. We established that our clients had no responsibility to set up or inspect the bleachers, which was exclusively the responsibility of the University.
