Judgment on behalf of our client Robert Atkins pursuant to New York Labor Law – Atkins v. Metronome Events, Inc., et al, Index No. 650203/2014 (New York County, Supt. Ct. October 2, 2019)
After nearly five years of hard-fought litigation and two-week jury trial, a New York jury returned a verdict in favor of our client against the defendants for violating the employment laws and not paying our client the required wages. The Plaintiff was represented by trial attorney Jerry Boies. Mr. Boies issued the following statement: the principle that “to no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice” predates our Constitution. In fact, it was a promise by King John in the Magna Carta. That principle remains the firmest pillar of our justice system. It may have taken years for Mr. Atkins to see justice. Nevertheless, I am pleased that justice was not denied.

THE BOIES LAW FIRM, PLLC, on behalf of our client Jean Pierre, challenges the New York City Department of Education’s (“DOE”) decision to deny our client the security clearance he needed to continue working as a school bus driver.
