Transcripts and Videos of Arguments in the Court of Appeals for March 2018 Now Available

On February 28, 2018, we noted a case of interest from the oral arguments before the Court of Appeals in March 2018:

  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 ยง 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.”) See the transcript and the video.
