UFT on the Davids-Wright ruling

Press Releases

On March 28, 2018, the appellate division affirmed the Staten Island court's decision in the anti-tenure Davids-Wright lawsuit to allow the case to go forward.

In response, Adam Ross, the UFT's general counsel, issued the following statement:

We are disappointed in this procedural decision by an intermediate court. Judges around the nation have dismissed claims similar to those filed in the Davids-Wright case, and we are confident as the case goes forward that New York courts will ultimately recognize the importance to students and schools of reasonable due process for teachers.
