John Lynch and Neil Pandey Obtain Summary Judgment for School District in Construction Negligence Case


The plaintiff, an electrician, fell 15 feet from a school district ladder during the course of a construction project. He suffered permanent injuries to his legs and back and has been unable to return to work. Despite the fact that a district employee was present to inspect the work at the time of the accident, John and Neil successfully argued that the district was entitled to immunity under the tort immunity act and summary judgment was entered in their client’s favor.
