Court Dismisses Case Against Children’s Aid Society

  • February 10, 2011

ECBAWM successfully represented the Children’s Aid Society (CAS) in a putative class-action lawsuit that sought to prevent CAS from closing one of its schools located in an affluent New York City neighborhood. Instead of continuing to operate the school, CAS decided to concentrate its resources in neighborhoods with higher levels of poverty. A parent at the CAS school sought to prevent this closure, but on February 10, 2011, ECBAWM obtained a stipulation dismissing the case and allowing CAS to continue its mission of serving those who are most in need. ECBAWM attorneys Ilann Maazel and Sam Shapiro represented CAS.
