Lorraine B. Polin Secures Defense Verdict in Eastern District of New York

In January 2006, Lorraine B. Polin represented the Town of East Hampton, in a case brought by 28-year-old Special Education teacher, who sustained a spiral fracture of the fibula (Weber C) of his right ankle as the result of an allegedly improperly fastened horizontal outfield post at the Terry King Park in Amagansett, New York. A pre-trial settlement offer of $25,000 was rejected by plaintiff’s counsel. Liability and damages were tried before the Honorable Justice Magistrate James Orenstein in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York and resulted in a unanimous defendant’s verdict by a 10 member jury.
