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 plaintiffs in the suit, which was filed in 2006, allege that village officials played an active role in fostering private development that displaced minorities. 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.
