Belluck & Fox and Social Media Victims Law Center Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit against Meta, ByteDance, TikTok and the MTA

[NEW YORK, NY, Feb.22, 2024] – Belluck & Fox LLP and the Social Media Victims Law Center have initiated a groundbreaking wrongful death lawsuit. This legal action follows the tragic death of 15-year-old Zackery Nazario, who tragically lost his life due to the highly dangerous “Subway Surfing Challenge.” Having recently risen again in popularity, this challenge was targeted, encouraged, and inspired by social media content to which he was exposed. This lawsuit aims to hold Meta, TikTok, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority accountable for promoting and profiting from these life-threatening, viral challenges.

Popular since the 1980s, subway surfing has seen a resurgence among teens due to social media. Starting in 2021, the MTA reported a significant increase in incidents, with more than 450 cases in the first half of 2023. In that year, five people died from subway surfing in New York City, compared to five deaths between 2018 and 2022.

On the first anniversary of Zackery’s death, his family and friends gathered at the Williamsburg Bridge for a candlelight vigil and marched to the location near where Zackery fell to his death. This event aimed to unite the community in remembrance of Zackery, to share cherished memories, and to advocate for action against this deadly trend. Belluck & Fox LLP, along with the Social Media Victims Law Center, are committed to seeking justice for Zackery and, hopefully, providing some form of peace to his loved ones.

Belluck & Fox Wins Appeal Under Child Victims Act (CVA)

In a recent case, attorneys Michael Macrides, Harris Marks, and Seth Dymond from Belluck & Fox have successfully appealed a dismissal of a sexual abuse case under the Child Victims Act (CVA). Their efforts overturned the initial dismissal, which contested the details of a claim dating back to the late 1980s.

A motion to dismiss had been filed by the defendant based on CPLR 3211 (a) and the Court of Claims Act 11 (b), and it had been granted by the Court of Claims. However, this decision was challenged through persuasive arguments presented by the Belluck & Fox team in obtaining this significant appellate decision.

This ruling recognizes the difficulty survivors face when trying to recall exact dates and times of abuse, particularly in cases involving minors. The court acknowledged the validity of the plaintiff’s claims. Michael Macrides, Harris Marks, and Seth Dymond collectively achieved justice for the plaintiff, while also emphasizing the complexity of instances that occurred decades ago and the delicate balance between legal requirements and the lived experiences of survivors seeking closure and accountability.

Diseases Related to 9/11 First Responders and the Ongoing Impact

The devastating terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, not only claimed the lives of thousands of innocent people but also left a lasting impact on the health of the brave first responders who risked their lives to save others. Recently, the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) announced a tragic milestone – the number of first responders who have died from illnesses related to 9/11 has reached the same number as those who lost their lives on the day of the attacks. This somber revelation serves as a stark reminder of the long-term health consequences faced by these heroic individuals.

The FDNY shared the heartbreaking news via an Instagram post by Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh (@fdnyfc). She revealed that two more first responders had succumbed to 9/11-related illnesses, bringing the death toll to 343. EMT Hilda Vannata lost her battle with cancer, while retired firefighter Robert Fulco died from pulmonary fibrosis. Both had spent significant time working in the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center site.

Commissioner Kavanagh expressed deep sorrow for the families of these fallen heroes and emphasized the responsibility the FDNY has towards its colleagues beyond the events of September 11th. She acknowledged that the toll of these illnesses on FDNY members continues to rise, with approximately 11,000 individuals suffering from World Trade Center (WTC)-)-related diseases, including 3,500 with cancer. The commissioner noted, ‘Our responsibility to our FDNY colleagues extends far beyond what we asked of them on September 11th and in the days and months that followed during rescue and recovery.’

The legacy of honor and promise created for the fallen heroes drives the FDNY’s advocacy for survivors. Commissioner Kavanagh vowed to continue pushing until all members receive the care they deserve for the rest of their lives. The FDNY’s dedication to their service and sacrifice is unwavering, and their promise to never forget them stands strong.

FDNY Fire Commissioner Kavanaugh closed her Instagram post by noting, ‘343 of our heroes lost in one day and today, 343 more. The FDNY will never forget them. This is our legacy. This is our promise.’ The diseases related to 9/11 first responders are a harsh reality that has unfolded in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. The toll on the health and lives of these brave individuals is a constant reminder of the sacrifices made that day and in the days and months that followed. We must continue to support and advocate for the survivors, ensuring they receive the care they deserve. The legacy of the fallen heroes must be honored by fulfilling the promise of lifelong care and support for those who risked everything to save others on that fateful day.

If you or a loved one have been affected by the repercussions of diseases or health concerns related to 9/11, contact Belluck & Fox to discuss your options. Our skilled attorneys can help you in receiving the compensation and care that you need.

Taking Action for Safer Streets

A recent analysis by Transportation Alternatives reveals the alarming rate of serious traffic-related injuries occurring on the streets of New York City. The research showed that over 4,200 people endured significant bodily harm from January 2022 to June of this year alone, equating to an average of 8 people per day. It is evident that urgent action is needed to address the safety concerns plaguing our transportation infrastructure.

From January to September of 2023, there have been 170 traffic-related deaths in New York City. It has been a more fatal year for cyclists, with 22 killed thus far, compared to the 14 fatalities during the same period last year. Data collected by Transportation Alternatives shows that, on average, during the first six months of the year, 15 pedestrians, seven cyclists, and 27 drivers were seriously injured in crashes… each week.

Transportation Alternatives’ analysis examined crashes involving various road users, including cyclists, pedestrians, motorists, passengers, and individuals on motorized bikes and scooters. The data revealed that a significant number of accidents resulted in dismemberments, fractured bones, miscarriages, and permanent organ damage. These life-altering consequences highlight the urgent need for safer streets.

The analysis also exposed the disparities faced by particular communities. According to the crash data, the ten council districts with the highest populations of people of color faced a 15% increased likelihood of experiencing traffic injuries, while residents of the ten council districts with the highest poverty rates were nearly a quarter more likely to be gravely injured. Both of these statistics were in comparison to the average district. These contrasts underscore the need for equitable access to safe transportation options and more significant protection for vulnerable communities.

Councilmember Selvena Brooks-Powers, chair of the Council’s transportation committee, commented, ‘This data is alarming, but not surprising. Our transportation infrastructure forces those in our outer borough and lower-income neighborhoods to be disproportionately reliant on cars and bikes, putting them at the highest odds of being in harm’s way.’

Former Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero program, launched in 2014, aims to eliminate traffic deaths and injuries in New York City. However, Transportation Alternatives argues that the focus often rests solely on fatalities, neglecting the severity of serious injuries.

Some aspects of the analysis have been argued by the city’s Department of Transportation (DOT). The DOT has cited that specific neighborhoods typically have a heavier concentration of people during the day and fewer people at night.

Mona Bruno, a spokesperson for the DOT, wrote, ‘Throughout Vision Zero, NYC DOT has worked to ensure all New Yorkers benefit from our safety projects— and we’ve seen the greatest decreases in pedestrian fatalities both in neighborhoods with high poverty rates and the highest levels of non-white residents.’ She argued that an ‘equity formula’ that helps determine where to make street safety improvements has helped Transportation Alternatives focus more intently on the neighborhoods with high poverty rates and people of color.

Regardless of opinion or bias, the facts speak for themselves. Within the first six months of the year, Manhattan led the boroughs in pedestrian injuries with 289. Within this same period, Brooklyn led the boroughs in cyclist injuries with 204, while Queens led the boroughs in motorist injuries with 567.

The alarming number of severe injuries on New York City streets demands immediate attention and action. As we strive for safer streets and improved transportation infrastructure, it is crucial to support those who have suffered due to negligence or inadequate safety measures. Belluck & Fox stands ready to assist accident victims in pursuing justice, ensuring their voices are heard and their rights are protected.  With their extensive experience and expertise, their team will guide you through the legal process, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve.

If you or someone you know has been affected by a serious accident, contact Belluck & Fox today for expert legal counsel and representation. Together, we can work towards a safer and more secure future for all New Yorkers. Please reach out to Belluck & Fox today for a free consultation.

The Looming Health Crisis Among Quartz Countertop Workers

In a startling revelation, a recent study has unveiled a deeply concerning health crisis affecting workers in the quartz countertop industry. The research, published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine on July 24, sheds light on the harrowing experiences of individuals who are facing irreversible lung damage due to exposure to toxic silica dust. As we delve into the details of this study, it becomes evident that urgent action is needed to protect these workers and reevaluate the safety of the materials they handle daily.

The Unseen Threat:
Quartz countertops have become synonymous with modern aesthetics and functionality, gracing countless homes and commercial spaces worldwide. However, beneath this seemingly innocuous industry lies a grave danger that has far-reaching implications for the health and well-being of the workers who craft these elegant surfaces.

The study’s findings paint a distressing picture: 52 countertop workers in California, primarily Latino immigrants, were diagnosed with silicosis, a debilitating and potentially fatal disease caused by inhaling silica dust. The time frame from 2019 to 2022 witnessed the emergence of this concerning trend, with at least ten workers succumbing to the disease. Shockingly, many of these cases progressed rapidly, leading to an urgent demand for enhanced protective measures and early diagnosis.

A Call for Action:
The urgency of the situation is underscored by the fact that silicosis was previously thought to be a fading concern in the U.S., primarily affecting miners and individuals working with natural stone. However, the emergence of this alarming trend among workers dealing with artificial stone challenges our preconceived notions. Dr. Jane Fazio, a pulmonary specialist at UCLA Health and co-author of the study, emphasizes the necessity for immediate action to address the escalating crisis.

Dr. Fazio’s words ring true, especially considering the startling statistics surrounding the affected workers. The average age of diagnosis was just 45 years and nearly 60% experienced delayed diagnosis due to the confusion of symptoms with other respiratory illnesses. Nearly 40% were already at an advanced stage of the disease at diagnosis, underlining the urgency of early detection and intervention.

A New Perspective on Safety Measures:
The study also shed light on the prevailing safety practices within the industry. Fewer than half of the workers reported using water suppression techniques to minimize dust exposure. Similarly, only a fraction claimed to “always” wear masks, with the rest admitting to “sometimes” using them. These revelations underscore the dire need for regulatory agencies and employers to prioritize the safety and well-being of their workforce.

Conclusion: A Call for Change
The tragic cases highlighted in this study are a clarion call for change. As the demand for quartz countertops continues to rise, we cannot overlook the toll it takes on the individuals responsible for crafting these products. The findings compel us to reevaluate industry practices, enhance safety measures, and advocate for comprehensive changes prioritizing worker health over profit. It’s not just a matter of preventing silicosis but of human dignity and the fundamental right to a safe and healthy workplace. Let us heed this call for change and ensure that the silent danger lurking in the quartz countertop industry is confronted head-on.

Op-Ed: The United States Supreme Court and Judicial Ethics

by Joseph Belluck & Robert Tembeckjian

Originally published on Law.com • February 23, 2023

In February 2019, shortly after Brett M. Kavanaugh was confirmed as a justice of the United States Supreme Court despite serious allegations of sexual misconduct, numerous complaints against him were dismissed by a panel of judges without investigation, for two reasons.

First, although there is a binding code of ethics applicable to all lower federal court judges and all judges of the 50 states, the Supreme Court has never adopted such a code for itself. Thus, when Kavanaugh assumed his exalted new office, he was no longer subject to any promulgated ethical constraints.

Second, even if there were such a code, there is no mechanism to enforce it. There is no Inspector General or ethics-enforcement office for the federal judiciary, as there are in all the states.

There is only a diffuse system in which each judicial circuit handles complaints against its own judges and, not surprisingly, dismisses almost all of them.

Later in 2019, in testimony to Congress, Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan said that Chief Justice John Roberts was studying the matter of a code of conduct for the justices of his court.

Yet despite the passage of nearly four years, in which alleged conflicts of interest have been raised about several of Roberts’ colleagues, there has been no action.Recent reports, in fact, have revealed that, rather than set an example as one might expect of the nation’s highest court on such an important issue, the nine justices of the Supreme Court continue to trail all others, unable to agree on a code of conduct for themselves.

Indeed, in his annual report to Congress in December 2022, Roberts made absolutely no mention of a conduct code. The report did not once use the word “ethics,” even though numerous alleged ethical breaches animated discussions about the court all year—from the early leak of its controversial abortion decision in Dobbs, to reports that its religious-exemption decision in Hobby Lobby was disclosed in advance to evangelical advocates, to claims that partisan or professional activities and affiliations of one spouse or another required the corresponding justice’s disqualification from certain cases.

Dithering on judicial ethics threatens to undermine public confidence in the integrity and independence of our nation’s premier court, the only one explicitly created in the Constitution. Opinion polls already signal a decline.

Recent polls and studies by Gallup and the Pew Research Center show disapproval of the court at historic lows. The court’s reluctance to act on an ethics code is mystifying, due at least in part to its failure to explain itself, leaving Congress and commentators to speculate. Adoption of an ethics code should be relatively easy.

The American Bar Association’s Model Code of Judicial Conduct has been adapted by all 50 states and is applicable to its trial and appellate courts, including each state’s highest tribunal. The ABA Model was also the basis for the Code of Conduct for United States Judges, applicable to all federal trial and appellate judges, except of course those on the Supreme Court.

While the Supreme Court’s unique status may present enforceability issues were one of its justices to engage in misconduct—only Congress may discipline a Supreme Court justice via the impeachment process—there is simply no reasonable argument for its avoidance of mandated ethical guidelines.

Even a viable and constitutionally sound enforcement model is easily imaginable. Congressional proposals for creation of a judicial inspector general have been introduced, and state judicial disciplinary commissions—composed of judges, lawyers and non-lawyer “public” members— have operated with great effect since the first one was established in California in 1960.

Either model could easily be adapted for the entire federal bench. And just as numerous state enforcement bodies have applied the code to and disciplined judges of their respective highest courts, so could a similar entity designed for the national bench.

A federal inspector general or a conduct commission could report to the appropriate committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States and, where appropriate, recommend public or private reprimands of trial and Circuit appellate judges.

They could similarly make such reports and recommendations to Congress as to Supreme Court justices whose ethical lapses may warrant censure or, in egregious situations, impeachment and removal proceedings.

What is not sustainable is continued, prolonged delay on what should be a proposition beyond debate: that the highest court in the land should demonstrate its commitment to judicial ethics by adopting and applying to itself a code of conduct like every other court in the country.

 

Joseph W. Belluck and Robert H. Tembeckjian are, respectively, the Chair and the Administrator of the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct.
