Hardison v. King
An Appellate Division case that arose out of an appeal of a trial court’s decision granting Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment. In other words, the trial court Judge felt the law prevented Mr. Hardison from seeking monetary damages for his injuries since he had three prior injuries to the same body parts. In disagreement with the Judges determination an Appeal was filed. At the Appellate Division, which comprises of a three-Judge panel, the Court reversed the trial court’s finding which created a narrow exception to the then existing law.
