Representative Decisions

  • Canner, et. al. v. The City of Long Beach, et. al., Eastern District of New York, Docket No.: 2:12-cv-02611. On reconsideration, the Court granted a motion to dismiss the union president due to the Taylor Law mandating that union officers are not subject to personal liability for breach of the duty of fair representation claims. Subsequently, following dismissal of the City employer from the matter, the Court granted the union’s motion to dismiss the breach of the duty of fair representation claim due to the inability of the plaintiffs to prove a violation of the employer, which is a prerequisite to finding a breach of the duty of fair representation by the union.
