As Target Slip and Fall in Staten Island Arrives in SDNY Judge Engelmayer Asks of Venue

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 5 –  Jaime H. Ortega of Staten Island had a slip and fall at the Target store at 2873 Richmond Avenue there on August 11, 2017. He sued, in New York State court in Manhattan. It was removed to Federal court. 

 On October 5 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

Judge Engelmayer asked, Why is this case in the SDNY? If the plaintiff is from Staten Island, and the store is there too? 

 The plaintiff's counsel explained that Target designed Manhattan as the county in which to sue it. Open and shut.  

 Judge Engelmayer said depositions are due by December 18, with another case management conference on March 2, 2021.

The case is Ortega et al v. Target Corporation et al., 20-cv-4130 (Engelmayer)
