Mirza v. Metropolitan Life et al
In July Robert Brown achieved a unanimous defense verdict after a 13-day jury trial defending a security guard company against negligence claims related to the stabbing of a 21-year-old event attendee. In a reported decision, Bob had previously obtained the summary judgment dismissal of an employee of the company and limited the alleged exposure first to whether the security company had assumed a duty to the plaintiff and second whether there was negligence (2 A.D.3d 808, 770 N.Y.S.2d 384 (2d Dep’t 2003)). The case was stayed for a number of years for other reasons and in July 2010 Bob tried the case to a jury which returned a unanimous defense verdict.
