Alexander Klein Obtains Dismissal of All Six Claims in $15 Million Dollar Lawsuit

Four months ago, attorney Alexander Klein of Barket Epstein Kearon Aldea & LoTurco, LLP, filed an application before the Supreme Court, Nassau County, seeking dismissal of all six claims in a $15 million dollar lawsuit.  The case involved years-old allegations of negligence, sexual assault, and fraud, and it raised complex questions concerning, among other things: the intersection of criminal law and civil statutes of limitations; how to apply statutes of limitations when plaintiffs claim to have recovered memories of years-old wrongs; and where to draw the outer limits on the definition of fraud in New York State.

On July 30, 2018, the Court granted Klein’s motion on all counts—dismissing the lawsuit in its entirety.  The win is yet another favorable outcome in the firm’s civil litigation department.
