Stancarone v DiNapoli, 161 AD3d 144 [3d Dept 2018]: winning appeal on behalf of injured police officer, the Third Department abandoned a confusing and inconsistent standard regarding the upgraded “3/4” accidental disability pension and articulated a new rule to be followed when considering what is considered an “accident” as a matter of law for the purposes of the pension.

Fennelly v Eastchester Fire Dist., 153 AD3d 1342 [2d Dept 2017]:  winning on appeal, disallowing the municipal fire district to recoup many years of alleged overpayments of GML-207(a) 2 benefits.
