Asbestos at Coliseum leads to premises liability lawsuit

The Nassau Coliseum is plagued by troubles.

Premises liability: fatal Brooklyn construction site accident

The partial collapse of a single-family home in a Brooklyn neighborhood has resulted in the death of one worker, and injuries to three others.
