Isabella v. Koubek, 45

In a case arising from an automobile accident, the answer to the question from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit is: A defendant may not pursue a third-party contribution claim under New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 388 against the owner of a vehicle, where the vehicle driver's negligence was a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff's injuries, but the driver is protected from suit by the exclusive remedy provisions of New York Workers' Compensation Law section 29 (6).
