Levy, Bank, & Bholan Obtain Summary Judgment Dismissing All Claims Against Client

July 11, 2017 | Employment & Labor

Barry Levy, Brian Bank, and Michelle Bholan obtained summary judgment dismissing all claims asserted by local union officers against AFSCME International in an action brought in the Southern District of New York.  The action challenged AFSCME International’s imposition of an administratorship over the local union.

The court, in granting the motion in its entirety, adopted AFSCME International’s argument that the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (“LMRDA”) was inapplicable because the local union represented only public employees.  The court further concluded that AFSCME International did not violate the Labor Management Relations Act and that that its International President’s interpretation of its international constitution and decision to impose the administratorship was reasonable and made in good faith.
