Decided on April 6, 2011
PRESENT: GOLIA, J.P., PESCE and RIOS, JJ
The judgment, upon a jury verdict in favor of defendant on the issue of liability, dismissed the complaint.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
This action was brought as a result of an incident which occurred when a shopping cart on defendant's premises allegedly rolled down a ramp and struck the shopping cart of plaintiff Liliya Rozina, causing personal injuries. Following a trial on the issue of liability, the jury returned a verdict in favor of defendant. A judgment was subsequently entered dismissing the complaint.
Plaintiffs' contention that the Civil Court erred in failing to instruct the jury on foreseeability (PJI 2:12) and the doctrine of respondeat superior (PJI 2:235) is not preserved for appellate review as plaintiffs' counsel did not state on the record "the matter to which he objects and the grounds of his objection" (CPLR 4110-b), and the claimed errors were not so fundamental as to warrant the exercise of our discretion to review them in the interest of justice.
Plaintiff's remaining contentions are either unpreserved for appellate review, without merit, or not such as to warrant reversal under the circumstances presented.
Golia, J.P., Pesce and Rios, JJ., concur.
