Schneider v. Katzir Floor and Home Design, Inc.
In 1997, Mr. Horwitz represented the defendant corporation against the plaintiff’s claims of negligence and strict liability and claims of loss of consortium brought by the plaintiff’s wife. The plaintiff fell off scaffolding at a job site and was impaled on a wrought iron fence below. The court denied Mr. Horwitz’s Motion for Summary Judgment, but reversed itself after entertaining Mr. Horwitz’s Motion for Reconsideration. The plaintiffs appealed, but the Court of Appeals upheld the lower court’s grant of Summary Judgment in favor of Mr. Horwitz’s client, effectively dismissing the plaintiffs’ complaint. A cross-complaint brought by the scaffolding company against Mr. Horwitz’s client was similarly dismissed.
