Brian Calistri Argues Before the New Jersey Supreme Court


Brian Calistri argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court on March 13, 2018 on a res ipsa loquitur issue, which arose in the context of an elevator liability trial. Despite Calistri prevailing on behalf of his elevator service contractor client before the trial court and the appellate division, the Supreme Court granted review on the question of whether the plaintiff should have been entitled to an inference of negligence merely by placing into evidence the fact that an elevator door had closed on her, without further proof of any actual negligence by the maintenance contractor. Calistri's oral argument before the court can be viewed on the attached link.
