Does Daubert Equal Summary Judgment?

On February 28th, Maggie Tamburro posted on that “as the role of experts becomes all the more critical in the world of litigation, many legal commentators are now pondering if a Daubert challenge has become the new summary judgment.  In cases requiring expert testimony, courts seem progressively willing to “connect the dots” between a Daubert challenge and summary judgment”.

Yarmus Engineering, P.C. specializes in providing Forensic Engineering services regarding Engineering, Construction, and Property Management related matters.  We are keenly aware of such Daubert issues, and accordingly perform our work and issue our reports with an eye towards minimizing the likelihood of success of any such challenges.  Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients. 

Worker dies after NYC warehouse undergoing demolition collapses

On March 22nd The New York Times reported that “a construction worker died Thursday after a century-old, two-story warehouse under demolition as part of Columbia University’s expansion collapsed in a hail of concrete, bricks and steel that engulfed three workers”.

Yarmus Engineering, P.C. has been asked to partner with an integrity monitoring and compliance firm in submitting a bid to assist New York State’s Empire State Development Corporation in monitoring this project.  We look forward to having an opportunity to assist in attempting to ensure that the work on this project proceeds smoothly and  without such incidents going forward.  Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients.
