Q: Can New York City or another New York municipality be held liable for negligent snow and ice removal ?
A:Yes. As New York's Court of Appeals recently held in Marco v. Village/Town of Mt. Kisco, if the municipality had an active role in creating the dangerous snow and ice condition, they can be held liable as a matter of law, even if they didn't have prior written notice of the defective condition.
