For the Defense, the monthly publication of The Defense Research Institute (DRI), recently featured an article co-authored by Christopher Renzulli and James Brown, New York Court of Appeals Floors Same Level Rule, in its June 2012 issue.

The article addresses the expanding interpretation of New York’s Labor Law § 240(1), with particular emphasis on the Courts’ recent repudiation of the same level rule, which had previously protected owners and general contractors from absolute liability when construction workers were struck by objects which were resting on the same level as the worker.
