William Lawlor Wins Summary Judgment Dismissing Labor Law Case In Kings County

On May 24, 2018, William Lawlor won summary judgment dismissing the plaintiffs’ complaint in Wloch v. JDT Realty Enterprises, Index No. 511922/2014 (Sup. Ct., Kings County).  The plaintiff, a union construction worker, claimed that he sustained a traumatic brain injury and injuries to his shoulder, neck and lumbar spine when he was struck on the head by a falling piece of metal fencing.  Mr. Lawlor argued that the plaintiffs’ complaint, including allegations of violations of Labor Law Sections 200, 240(1) and 241(6), must be dismissed because our client was the “alter ego” of the plaintiff’s employer.  The Court agreed and dismissed the case in its entirety.
