Diana Hallock v Riverhead Central School District

Defendant appealed an order from Supreme Court denying its motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint, an action to recover damages for personal injuries sustained on a school bus and at school. The defendant established its entitlement to judgment by submitting evidence proving no actual or constructive notice or knowledge of alleged misconduct on the school bus and at the school. Plaintiffs failed to prove that school authorities had specific knowledge of the dangerous conduct with caused the injury.

Accordingly, the Supreme Court reversed the order and granted defendant’s motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
