Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In an action based on an injury plaintiff sustained while using a pulley to move a reel of wire down a small flight of stairs, judgment as a matter of law for plaintiff is affirmed where defendants were liable under New York's "scaffold law" because the application of the force of gravity to an 800 pound reel of wires caused plaintiff's hands to be severely injured.
