Litigation Against Municipalities - Avoiding Delays

One of the most frustrating aspects about cases against municipalities is very often the long delays that occur due to the municipality's failure to produce witnesses and documents on time. These delays result in numerous extra court appearances which can hold the injured parties' lawsuit in a state of limbo. Fortunately, the courts have recently come down with a decision in Asim v. City of New York which sanctioned the New York City Transit Authority $10,000 for its failure to timely produce relevant information and witnesses. The threat of this money sanction is a helpful basis in getting municipalities to provide relevant witnesses and other items in a more timely manner.

At Restivo & Murphy LLP we appreciate how frustrating these type of delays can be to our clients who are awaiting a resolution of their cases. We pride ourselves of staying up on the latest developments in the law which affect our clients and aggressively employing them to protect our clients' interests. If you have been injured in an accident involving a municipality and have any questions about your rights, the attorneys at Restivo & Murphy LLP are available to assist you. Simply call 516-489-0800 for a free consultation.
