  • Matter of Steel Los III/Goya Foods, Inc. v. Board of Assessors of County of Nassau – Acted as lead counsel for the Bethpage U.F.S.D. successfully arguing that the Nassau County Administrative Code § 6-26.0 (b) (3) (c) "no charge back" provision applies to "payments-in-lieu-of-taxes" (PILOT payments), thus making deficits incurred by affected taxing jurisdictions resulting from property overassessments "a county charge" and not chargeable back to the school district. Matter of Steel Los III/Goya Foods, Inc. v. Board of Assessors of County of Nassau, 10 N.Y.3d 445 (2008).
  • Cave v. E. Meadow U.F.S.D. – Acted as lead counsel for the East Meadow School District successfully opposing a motion for an injunction, which would have required the school district to allow the hearing-impaired student entry to his school while accompanied by his service dog.

  • Ehrlich v. Inc. Village of Sea Cliff – Acted as lead counsel representing the village attorney in a discrimination lawsuit in which the court granted the village attorney and other defendants their legal fees in defending the lawsuit because plaintiff brought and continued his action against the defendants without any arguable basis in fact or law.
