Douglas Company (DGD) and Botanical Garden (BG) for summary judgment dismissing the remainder of plaintiff's claim based on violation of the Industrial Code, unanimously affirmed, without costs.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
Mazzarelli, J.P., Friedman, Catterson, Abdus-Salaam, JJ.
Plaintiff's supplemental bill of particulars, which specified the Industrial Code sections on which his Labor Law § 241(6) claim was based, was not prejudicial to defendants because it did not change the theory of liability.
A question of fact is presented as to whether the spot where plaintiff fell was covered by either paragraph of 12 NYCRR § 23-1.7(e), the Industrial Code provision invoked in the supplemental bill (see Smith v Hines GS Props., Inc., 29 AD3d 433 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
