Caroline K. Hock obtained summary judgment in Supreme Court, Queens County in favor of our client, a specialty construction company. Six plaintiffs brought a lawsuit alleging that they were injured in a motor vehicle accident involving our client’s company owned vehicle. Caroline successfully demonstrated that our client’s vehicle was stolen at the time of the accident and as such the company could not be held liable for the plaintiffs’ injuries pursuant to New York Vehicle and Traffic Laws §388 and §1210. The Court agreed that the vehicle was being operated without the permission and consent of our client, and dismissed the case.
