Lest anyone think I was just being an alarmist in "The Most Critical Mistake To Avoid When Suing A Municipality," just last week the New York Law Journal published an opinion by Kings County trial judge Robert Miller in Sharpe v. City of New York, which dismissed the lead poisoning case (which presumably included severe personal injuries, including plumbism and cognitive deficits) brought by an infant on the grounds that this plaintiff did not timely file their notice of claim against the City, and then  failed to offer a reasonable excuse for their failure to do so.
