Neil Mascolo: Defense Verdict in Supreme Court, Queens County Battery Trial

January 23, 2014

Partner Neil Mascolo just obtained a Defense Verdict in a Battery case in Supreme Court, Queens County.  The case involved claims that a union officer committed a battery on another member during a grievance hearing.  Our defense was that while there was contact, it was minimal and in self defense and therefore justified.  Neil skillfully exploited the credibility issues and weaknesses of plaintiff’s case to exonerate our client.
