First Department Unanimously Affirmed Trial Court Decision Granting PMT’s Summary Judgment
PMT was defending the plaintiff’s employer. The Plaintiff fell 20 feet off a catwalk. The way the indemnification clause was written, if there was a finding of even 1% negligence against the employer, the employer would have been required to indemnify the building owner. Since it was unanimously affirmed, there was no option to go to the Court of Appeals. The Court held no negligence by the plaintiff’s employer.
