Mr. Kerrigan, Mr. Le Clercq and Mr. Walsh obtained a dismissal with prejudice on a motion for summary judgment in the 19th JDC, Parish of East Baton Rouge, on behalf of a manufacturer of access control devices. The manufacturer had been sued by a university police officer who claimed injuries resulting from a malfunction of a parking lot's exit gate. Deutsch, Kerrigan & Stiles was able to prove that the plaintiff, who was riding his duty motorcycle at the time, knew that motorcycles and parking gates were incompatible and that the plaintiff's employer had removed the manufacturer's warnings. Judge Hernandez gave written reasons for judgment.
