Trial Judge Recommends NYCHA Employee Reinstatement WITH Backpay For Previously Wrongful Suspension

Trial Judge Recommends NYCHA Employee Reinstatement WITH Backpay For Previously Wrongful Suspension

GB had been employed by New York City Housing Authority for more than a decade when he was accosted by another employee on NYCHA property. Despite the incident happening after work hours and GB denying any wrongdoing NYCHA suspended GB.
Refusing to use NYCHA union counsel, GB came to Cohen Forman Barone seeking private legal representation. At a hearing that lasted over 3 days GB testified in his own behalf and NYCHA called six witnesses against GB . At the conclusion of the hearing the trial judge dismissed both counts against GB and recommended to NYCHA that “[n]o penalty should be imposed on [GB] including any pre-hearing suspension” and GB should not have been docked any pay.
As a result of the trial defense of the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone and specifically the cross-examination of the witnesses against GB, GB has his job, his security and his income back.
