Mealey's (April 20, 2017, 5:34 PM EDT) -- NEW YORK — A New York appeals panel on Oct. 13 ruled that a state justice properly denied a hotel franchisor’s motion for summary judgment in a premises liability action as premature, saying that a plaintiff is entitled to discovery of issues related to the franchisor’s possible agency relationship with a hotel where her slip-and-fall injury occurred (Gloria Stern v. Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc., No. 3690, 108672/11, N.Y. Sup., App. Div., 1st Dept., 2017 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 2793).
