Big Win for the NY Retail Defense team!


Ropers Majeski Kohn & Bentley, PC, is pleased to announce that in October 2017, Partner and Retail Team Leader Scott W. Bermack and Senior Associate Lisa M. Fitzgerald won a full dismissal of all claims against a national retailer being sued for negligence in NY State Supreme Court, Schenectady County.  The plaintiff, who was shopping in the store, allegedly sustained serious injuries when her foot got caught on a metal display shelf. She sued the company, arguing that the display was negligently designed and constructed.  After establishing to the satisfaction of the judge that the display met all industry standards and was appropriately designed, the case was dismissed.
