Walls v. Farrell and County of Albany, et al., (Teresi, J., January 12, 2000)
The Court granted summary judgment to all defendants in a case involving alleged lead poisoning of three infants. The medical and psychological evidence submitted by the defendants stated that the cognitive and physical injuries of these three infants were caused by factors other than lead. These causative factors included Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and the social environment of the three infants. The Court ruled that plaintiffs' opposing papers did not raise a triable issue of fact that the infant plaintiffs' lead exposure caused the injuries alleged in the Bill of Particulars.
