Jay O’Brien Obtains Summary Judgment in Federal Court for His Property Management Client

Jay O’Brien obtained summary judgment in federal court on behalf of a property management company in a case involving an allegation that a tenant of an apartment building was bitten by snakes that infested her apartment.  Plaintiff alleged that after being bitten her organs failed and she almost died.  Utilizing a medical expert Jay was able to establish that there was no evidence that a snake could cause the injuries alleged, or that a snake did, in fact, cause the type of injuries alleged by Plaintiff.  Because Plaintiff was not able to establish causation, the court granted summary judgment.  Plaintiff was seeking in excess of $10,000,000.00 for her damages.
