Missing document charge not grantedNovember 16, 2014

Knight v M & M Sanitation Corp., 2014 NY Slip Op 07631 (2d Dept. 2014)

This serious injury trial was problem for Plaintiff on may accounts.  But there was discussion on a missing document charge for the failure to obtain photographs:

“Although there was testimony that McCarron took pictures at the accident scene with a disposable camera, the plaintiff failed to establish that any photographs of the accident scene existed, or that he moved to compel their production during discovery (see McGloin v Golbi, 49 AD3d 610Crespo v New York City Hous. Auth., 222 AD2d 300).”
