  1. Skanska USA Building, Inc. v Atlantic Yards B2 Owner, LLC (No. 38) (argued on Tuesday, March 20, 2018) ("Contracts--Breach or Performance of Contract--Construction maintenance contract for construction of high-rise residential tower in the Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn--whether the Appellate Division erred in its interpretation of Lien Law § 5 as it applied to the security provided for contractor payment in this project--nature of bond or undertaking required to be posted for labor and materials furnished for work on public improvement; corporations--piercing of corporate veil--whether the Appellate Division erred in finding that plaintiff failed to plead a veil-piercing claim; attorney and client--disqualification--whether the Appellate Division erred in declining to disqualify one of defendants' law firms based on a conflict of interest.")
