Jose Lobo v. Gatehouse Partners, LLC

This is an interesting case from the Manhattan appellate court that has implications outside of the construction accident context. Here, the worker was a resident of Connecticut and sued under the Labor Law for injuries he suffered in a construction accident in Westchester County, New York. The Defendant and other parties involved are residents of Connecticut. The Court said that the case could be heard in New York because the Labor Law is there to protect workers in New York and the courts in New York will have to use New York law for the injured worker’s claims. They said that since the general contractor entered into a contract to perform work in New York, there was no hardship to them.
