About CasePrepPlus

CasePrepPlus is an exclusive benefit of membership in the New York State Bar Association.

 

New York appellate courts release, on average, between 150 and 200 decisions per week. The CasePrepPlus service summarizes the most significant decisions, which include substantive discussions of the facts and the law, into one-paragraph summaries, which are prefaced by succinct headings, allowing the reader to quickly decide whether a case is of interest. Each summary is linked to the full decision. Keeping up with the decisions released the week before, a process which could easily take an individual attorney numerous hours every week, takes only minutes with CasePrepPlus.

Summaries are written by Rochester-based attorney Bruce Freeman. For his bio, click here.

Our thanks to Roy Warner, Esq., the creator of CasePrepPlus, the primary author of the CasePrepPlus service prior to Mr. Freeman’s involvement, and a NYSBA member for over 40 years.


FIRST DEPARTMENT

CIVIL PROCEDURE, NEGLIGENCE, CORPORATION LAW.
Even Though the Defendant Corporation Did Not Have an Office in New York County, and the Traffic Accident Occurred in Nassau County Where the Corporation Did Have an Office, Venue Was Appropriately Placed in New York County Based on Defendant’s Certificate of Incorporation
The First Department, reversing Supreme Court, determined the defendants’ motion to change venue in this traffic accident case should not have been granted. Even though the accident was not in New York County. and defendant corporation did not have an office in New York County, the certificate of incorporation designated New York County as the location of its principal office and the certificate controls.
