30 Appeal and Error
Plaintiffs in medical malpractice action were not prejudiced by trial court’s threat to lock counsel for both sides in closet filled with weapons so that they could settle their disputes, since comments were addressed to both counsel, and were not objected to by either side.
Alonso v. Powers, 632 N.Y.S.2d 551 (N.Y. App. Div. 1995)
