Louise Digiulio, &C v. Gran

New York Court of Appeals


June 14, 2011

LOUISE DIGIULIO, &C., APPELLANT,
v.
GRAN, INC., &C., ET AL., RESPONDENTS. (AND A THIRD-PARTY ACTION.)

This memorandum is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the New York Reports.

MEMORANDUM:

The order of the Appellate Division should be affirmed, with costs.

Assuming arguendo that General Business Law § 627-a implicitly created a duty for defendants to use the automated external defibrillator (AED) the section required them to provide at their facility, plaintiff cannot recover because she failed to raise a triable issue of fact demonstrating that defendants' or their employees' failure to access the AED was grossly negligent (see General Business Law § 627-a [3]; Public Health Law § 3000-a). Defendants also did not breach any common-law duty to render aid to the decedent.

Plaintiff's remaining contention lacks merit.

On review of submissions pursuant to section 500.11 of the Rules, order affirmed, with costs, in a memorandum. Chief Judge Lippman and Judges Ciparick, Graffeo, Read, Smith, Pigott and Jones concur.
