Update: An FAQ on the Appellate Court & Supreme Court orders in the budget cuts lawsuit & what comes next

This is a fast moving story.  The fact sheet below has been updated since the Appellate Court gave the City an automatic stay late in the day on August 9.  Here is the attorney’s statement on the Appellate Court’s action.

August 9, 2022

On Friday, August 5,  in Tucker vs the City of New York, the lawsuit against the damaging school budget cuts,  Judge Lyle Black issued a court order that requires the city to revert to the last year’s education budget with a few exceptions, until the City Council takes a revote on the education budget.

Then on August 9, the Appellate Court gave an automatic stay to Judge Black’s court order, meaning that the budget cuts can remain in place until the Appellate Court hears the case on August 29.

An FAQ prepared by Laura Barbieri, the attorney for the plaintiffs, follows.

Any questions, please email us at info@classsizematters.org and we will forward any question we can’t answer to the attorney.   Thanks!
