Louis A. CAPPARELLI, Jr., and Dawn M. Capparelli, Appellants-Respondents, v. ZAUSMER FRISCH ASSOCIATES, INC., and/or Zausmer Frisch Construction Co., Inc., and Council House Realty Corporation, Respondents.
Zausmer Frisch Construction Co., Inc., Third-Party Plaintiff, v. Burns Electric Co., Inc., Third-Party Defendant-Respondent-Appellant.
Council House Realty Corporation, Third-Party Plaintiff-Respondent, v. Burns Electric Co., Inc., Third-Party Defendant-Respondent-Appellant.
Because the alleged injury of plaintiff Louis A. Capparelli, Jr. was the result of his exposure “to the usual and ordinary dangers of a construction site, and not the extraordinary elevation risks envisioned by Labor Law § 240(1)” (Rodriguez v. Tietz Ctr. for Nursing Care, 84 N.Y.2d 841, 843, 616 N.Y.S.2d 900, 640 N.E.2d 1134), dismissal of the Labor Law § 240(1) cause of action is warranted. Thus, we modify the order by granting the motion of third-party defendant for partial summary judgment and dismissing that cause of action.
Order unanimously modified on the law and as modified affirmed without costs.
