Lum, Stein, Greenfield and Herman Obtain Appellate Victory for Major Arena Client

October 20, 2201

Larry Lum (Partner-New York, NY), Aviva Stein (Partner-New York, NY), Ben Greenfield (Of Counsel-White Plains, NY) and Elie Herman (Associate-New York, NY | Stamford, CT) obtained a unanimous decision from the First Department Appellate Division, upholding the dismissal of a lawsuit against the firm’s major arena client. The underlying case involved a spectator sitting behind a plexiglass barrier who was hit and injured by a hockey puck at the arena. The court relied on case law established by the firm more than 20 years ago regarding the applicability of the limited duty rule and upholding shielding protections in place. This case, handled by Larry, was the first appellate-level review of the enhanced shielding measures adopted by the National Hockey League in 2002.
