Fractured Finger by LIRR in 2017 Being Schmoozed in SDNY in 2020 Annals of Justice

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 27 – Some forms of litigation are entirely routinized in the Federal courts. So it is with lawsuits against railroads. Case in point was heard on May 14 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Back on March 27, 2017, Brian Servat working for LIRR in Hillside, Queens "was guiding a suspension steering arm up into position using a fork lift, the lift failed, dropping down, causing the knuckle to pinch the plaintiff's finger." 

He sued. 

 Jump cut to May 14, 2020 when Sean Constable for Servat faced off with Christopher Pogan for LIRR. Both said they have faced each other before; LIRR's lawyer said he usually liked to depose the plaintiff before settling.

  So the matter was put off for montns, to December 3. The trains keep running on time.

The case is Servat v. Long Island Railroad Company, 19-cv-11237 (Liman).
