Mama’s Food Shop wanted to expand its eatery to add a sidewalk cafe. It was not permitted by the Department of Buildings. They sued various parties, and their attorney, on the theory
that he had failed to exercise due dilligence. Supreme Court, Edmead, J. dismissed the case Mama’s Food Shop v. Robrose Place, LLC, against plaintiff’s former attorney, finding that the allegations of damage were insufficient to demonstrate any ascertainable damages.
