The settlement came after negotiations were completed before state Supreme Court Justice James Gilpatric. Joseph Carnevale, who was 25 at the time of the ladder collapse in 2003, was doing renovations at the IBM building. He was employed as a union sprinkler fitter by Dutchess Fire Protection of Wappingers Falls. The settlement will be paid by insurance companies for IBM, C.B. Strain & Sons Inc., Sordoni Skanska Inc. and Skanska USA Buldings Inc. The lawsuit had alleged violations of New York state Labor Law. Steven Melley represented the Plaintiff.
