  • Ed Buckley and Nick Rivera recently prevailed on a Motion for Summary Judgment on a plaintiff’s strict liability and warranty claims in a tire blowout products liability case.  The judge’s ruling was a significant win for the defense.  Our attorneys’ motion resulted in two important victories for our client:

    1. The Order dismissed the Strict Liability claim because the Plaintiff was not the user or consumer of the vehicle condemning the allegedly defective tire.  Rather, she was travelling in her own vehicle in the opposite direction and was struck by another vehicle that crossed the center line after the blowout.  The Plaintiff died as a result of her injuries.
    2. The Plaintiff abandoned the warranty of merchantability claim at the Summary Judgment Hearing because our attorneys proved conclusively that the sale of the subject vehicle was “as is” without any warranties.  None of the paperwork contained any warranty disclaimers, but the UCC allows exclusion of warranties in transactions between “merchants” through usage of trade. The vehicle and it's allegedly defective tire had been obtained by our client in trade and was wholesaled to a local used car dealer who testified that all such wholesale dealer to dealer sales are "AS IS" whether or not warranties are disclaimed in writing.
  • YCRLAW is honored to announce that the law firm has received a Tier 1 Ranking in the 2016 Edition of U.S. News - Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms". This Tier 1 ranking was determined from the firm's overall evaluation, which was derived from a combination of factors including clients feedback and the high regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice area have for the firm.

  • When he is not practicing law, Michael Molony presides as a judge over Charleston’s livability court, which is designed to address things like noise violations that threaten the charm of our great city.  Michael helped create this court in 2002, and now Florence has adopted this same model.  Michael discussed the livability court in the ABA Journal released this month.  To read the article and learn more about the livability court, click here.
