Stephanie Blumstein defeated an appeal brought to vacate a judgment E&D obtained in its client’s favor after trial. E&D had prevailed in trial and obtained judgment on behalf of a property owner against a neighboring property owner whose fire escape encroached over the parties’ common boundary line and prevented the completion of construction of a new multi-family house. The client received an order requiring the removal of the encroachment and damages for additional construction costs and lost rental income. In their appeal, the defendants argued that the trial judge applied incorrect legal standards when determining liability and the amount of damages. The appellate court agreed with E&D that the correct legal standards had been applied by the trial judge and the judgment was affirmed.
