On April 19, 2018, Carol Tempesta and Julie Mer of our Elmsford, NY office secured a dismissal with prejudice for a Marks O’Neill client during voir dire in a high profile Weitz & Luxenberg NYCAL asbestos matter after moving for a mistrial. Jury selection had been ongoing for eight days and we continued to press our defenses on behalf of our client. Upon our Motion for a Mistrial, Plaintiff moved for leave to serve an amended complaint, however, the request was denied and the judge ordered plaintiff to dismiss our client with prejudice.
