Bushwick Parking Lot Insurance Triggers SDNY Jury in July Or Zoom Trial Before Judge Rakoff

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 4 –  Insurance on a parking lot at 467 Bushwick Avenue in Brooklyn has given rise to a lawsuit that may or not not go to a jury in July, or a bench trial before that. 

  On January 4 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed S. Rakoff held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Rakoff joked about how much insurance companies like juries. He offered a bench trial, acknowledging he perhaps should have said that in the order setting up the conference, so the two sides could ask their clients.

  He described the four large courtrooms in the SDNY, on the top floors of 500 Pearl Street, and said Zoom seemed to work fine for bench trials.

The lawyers picked a July jury trial date, but said they will soon write in if a bench trial is acceptable.

 The case is Great American Insurance Company v. Zelik, 19-cv-1805 (Rakoff)
