Queens Injury Attorney Todd Greenberg Settles Lawsuit Against City Of New York For Teacher’s Action In Encouraging “fight Club” At Elementary School”
October 28, 2014
On October 27 th, 2014, a Queens County Supreme Court Justice approved a six figure settlement for a client of Addabbo and Greenberg who was in elementary school in Queens County when his teacher organized a fist fight between the eleven year old Plaintiff and another student while telling other students to close the classroom door and to enter into a circle around the combatants. Although the child suffered minor physical injury, the Infant Plaintiff suffered severe psychological injuries. After arguing in court that the teacher was negligent in his supervision and care of the infant plaintiff, a settlement was reached immediately prior to trial and subsequently approved by the Court. Knowledge of the law and persistence on behalf of our client allowed the Infant Plaintiff to obtain the best possible outcome in his case.
