Practice point: The Appellate Division affirmed the granting of the City's motion to dismiss the complaint in this action where plaintiff alleges that he was injured when he tripped and fell at a branch of the New York Public Library. The City is not responsible for injuries resulting from allegedly negligent maintenance of a library building.
Student note: In light of the dismissal of the complaint as against the City, plaintiff's discovery motion became moot.
