In this action brought in New Haven Superior Court, Plaintiff alleged that Traub Lieberman’s client, an engineering consulting company, was liable in a trip and fall incident in which the Plaintiff sustained injuries. The Defendant was involved in a large scale CT DOT project to replace traffic control systems, cross walks, mast poles, and arm poles, and provided consultative work on the project, but was not involved in the area where the incident occurred. Traub Lieberman filed summary judgment which focused on the scope of the Defendant’s involvement, and specifically lack of involvement, in the location of the accident. On the eve of oral argument, Plaintiff’s counsel filed a voluntary withdrawal of action having realized that Plaintiff’s counsel would be unable to successfully oppose the motion.
