Hofstra Law Reform Advocacy Clinic’s Lawsuit Proceeds to Federal Court

The anti-discrimination lawsuit alleging that Village of Farmingdale officials pushed out Latino residents is scheduled to begin in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn on January 13, 2014. The federal court case is expected to last four to six weeks.

The suit was filed by the Hofstra Law Reform Advocacy Clinic, led by Professor Stefan Krieger, on behalf of nine former residents who are Latino.
