Webster Szanyi Attorney Peter Veech Prevails On Motion For Summary Judgment In Case Arising From A Motor Vehicle Accident Involving Municipal Employee

Webster Szanyi associate Peter Veech successfully moved for summary judgment dismissing the plaintiff’s complaint against a municipality located in Orleans County, in its entirety and with prejudice. Mr. Veech demonstrated that the municipal employee who was involved in the motor-vehicle-pedestrian accident giving rise to the lawsuit was “off-the-clock,” driving his own personal vehicle, and not acting within the course and scope of his employment for the municipality when the accident occurred.
