A negligence claim against the Marriott Marquis by a New Year's reveler hurt in a car accident after being evicted by the hotel has been dismissed by a judge, more than a year after the judge declined to dismiss the suit, saying at the time that innkeepers have a duty to provide safe harbor for guests. Following discovery, Judge Lawrence E. Kahn concluded last week the hotel's actions were not the proximate cause of the injuries and granted summary judgment in the defendant's favor on the negligence claim.
