David Bonilla-Reyes v. Richard Ribellino, et al.

In this case, a day laborer was injured after falling 20 feet from the platform of a forklift while stocking shelves inside a warehouse in Brooklyn. The main question was whether the worker’s activity of stocking shelves was covered by the “Scaffold Law.” Here, the court said it might be and that the case was allowed to go forward because plaintiff’s activity may have been “performed as part of the larger renovation project that he had been hired to complete on the premises, including assembly of the shelving structures and other tasks attendant to preparing the warehouse to receive [the] stock merchandise.” However, because this question could not be answered on paper alone, the worker could not win his case completely without a trial.
