PARTICULARLY NOT TO “ARETHA FRANKLIN” …..
After his personal injury case, which asserted Labor Law violations and common law negligence claims, was dismissed against Aretha Franklin and others, he appealed.
And on its review of the Bronx County Supreme Court’s determination, the Appellate Division, First Department, noted that since Aretha and other defendants fell within the “homeowner’s exemption” found in the law, the case was not properly maintainable against them.
By showing that they intended to live in the structure, and absent evidence that they “exercised supervisory control over the injury-producing work,” the AD1 concluded the statutory and common-law negligence claims had been “properly dismissed.”
Wonder how that made Aretha feel ….
