Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, First Department.
December 30, 2003.

Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Alice Schlesinger, J.), entered September 17, 2002, insofar as it denied in part and granted in part the motions of the five defendants ultimately found to be liable for summary dismissal of claims and cross claims asserted against them, unanimously modified, on the law, to the extent of limiting plaintiffs' entitlement to damages in accordance with the decision herein, and otherwise affirmed, without costs. Interlocutory judgment, same court and Justice, entered June 18, 2003, which, inter alia, adopted the jury's apportionment of liability among defendants Manhasset Condominium (5.14%), 108 Owners Corp.

The jury at the bifurcated trial apportioned responsibility among those parties. Four of the five parties adjudged responsible appeal from that apportionment in the interlocutory judgment, and plaintiffs and 10 of the original defendants appeal and cross-appeal from the earlier order to the extent that their motions and cross motions for summary judgment with regard to claims and cross claims were denied. With regard to those defendants not found liable by the jury, their appeals from the earlier order have been rendered...
