DiMichel v. South Buffalo Railroad Co.
Court of Appeals of New York
604 N.E.2d 63 (N.Y. 1992)
Anthony DiMichel (plaintiff), an employee of the South Buffalo Railway Company (South Buffalo) (defendant), was injured when he fell while on the job. DiMichel brought suit against South Buffalo and during discovery, he asked South Buffalo to produce all surveillance films it may have that captured the fall. South Buffalo claimed that the films were not discoverable. DiMichel filed a motion to compel disclosure of the films. The trial court granted DiMichel’s motion and the appellate court affirmed. South Buffalo appealed.
