Fullerton Beck partner Jason Aaron obtained an order of preclusion against an opposing party in a complex New York Labor Law case involving three injured workers. The case, venued in Kings County Supreme Court, arose out of a construction site accident in Brooklyn in which three workers fell from a significant height when a sidewalk bridge collapsed. The contractor that installed the sidewalk bridge asserted claims against Fullerton Beck’s client, a façade restoration contractor, for indemnity, contribution, and breach of contract.
Jason filed a motion seeking to preclude the sidewalk bridge contractor from testifying at trial and from offering an affidavit in dispositive motion practice based on the contractor’s deficient discovery production. Jason convinced the court that an order of preclusion was warranted, effectively preventing the sidewalk bridge contractor from offering evidence in support of its claims against our client, thus advancing the case in favor of the façade restoration contractor. Jason’s diligent, strategic discovery and motion practice demonstrate Fullerton Beck’s mission to be client-focused and results-driven.
