Update on Nespoli Case - Attack on Sanitation Workers Pension Rights - 2019

December 16, 2019: still no action from the trial court, three years later.

Update: On July 1, 2019 after a year and half delay the court scheduled a settlement conference for August 7, 2019. On August 2, 2019, Corp Counsel submitted a written request for a delay until after September 3, 2019 due to his vacation schedule. This case is almost three years old having started in November 2016. The court has yet to schedule a new date.

Perviously I have written about the Nespoli case dealing with NYCERS's attempt to force Tier 4 NYCERS members into the Tier 6 Sanitation Plan when they were appointed as Sanitiation workers. This legal action started on November 15, 2016.

Finally on Jan 22, 2018, NYCERS provided a written argument attempting to justify its position. On February 23, 2018 Nespoli was able to rebut NYCERS's flawed logic. I consider NYCERS's arguments particularly dishonest and lame.

You can read both arguments on the NYS Court Scroll web site referring to the folllowing Index# 159601-2016 for NY County.
