March 10, 2016 | Appeals | General Liability

Rivkin Radler obtained summary judgment on behalf of defendant, Hofstra University as well as a dismissal of the plaintiff’s action. In Goodheart v. Hofstra University, et al., the plaintiff tripped and fell at a baseball memorabilia show that was held at Hofstra University’s Fitness Center.  Frank Raia and Seth Goldberg obtained summary judgment and a dismissal of the plaintiff’s action. On appeal, the Appellate Division, Second Department affirmed the dismissal, finding that Hofstra was entitled to summary judgment because the plaintiff could not identify the cause of her fall without resorting to speculation. Cheryl Korman handled the appeal on behalf of Hofstra.
