Court Advances Equal Benefits Law

Judge sides with City Council to block Bloomberg’s bid against contractor partnership measure

Ruling from the bench on November 8, New York Supreme Court Justice Faviola Soto ordered New York City to begin implementation of the Equal Benefits Law, a measure passed over Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s veto earlier this year.

The ruling came in response to an Article 78 motion filed by the City Council that sought to order compliance on the part of the city’s Law Department.
