Partner Dan McCally Successfully Obtains Summary Judgment on Liability In Favor of School Bus Company

Posted: March 11, 2020

Partner Dan McCally quickly moved for summary judgment on liability in a negligence action against a school bus company and contracting local school district for injuries sustained by an infant plaintiff while riding as a passenger on the school bus.  On March 6, 2020, Honorable Paul J. Baisley, Jr issued a Short Form Order granting summary judgment to the school bus company, school district and the school bus driver prior to the commencement of discovery.  The Court ruled that Dan’s motion sustained the required initial evidentiary burden and that the attorney affirmation in opposition to the motion was insufficient to raise a triable issue of fact.
