-- In May of 2016, numerous individuals and families were victims of a burglary that occurred at Maspeth Federal Savings & Loan Association in Rego Park, New York. The victims lost jewelry, coins, family heirlooms and more.
Through their attorneys, Imbesi Law P.C., many of the victims filed lawsuits against the bank, seeking to recover compensation for the loss of their valuable items. The plaintiffs alleged breach of contract, negligence, gross negligence and a violation of New York General Business Law 349. The bank filed a motion to dismiss, attempting to have the victims' claims dismissed from court.
Recently, the Honorable Carmen R. Velasquez of the New York Supreme Court, Queens County, issued a ruling denying the bank's motion to dismiss and allowing all of the victims' claims to move forward in court.
Brittany Weiner, attorney for several of the victims says, "I am pleased that the court has decided our clients' claims can move forward. This is the first step towards seeking justice for the many victims of the burglary."
