A woman in her late 50’s was walking on a NYC sidewalk.  She tripped and fell on a small crack.  We argued that the City knew of the condition and should have fixed it and was responsible for knee injuries.  The City claimed that the crack was minimal or nonexistent and it lacked adequate notice.  After discovery proceedings, the case settled while on the trial calendar.
