Stroock is very proud to be representing a group of NYC teachers who were fired due to a test intended to measure knowledge of liberal arts and science which was found to be discriminatory by a federal judge in 2012 in a lawsuit filed 24 years ago. The city has been ordered to pay more than $450 million to about 1,700 teachers so far. Thousands more claims are still being heard.

Stroock partner Joshua Sohn, lead attorney for the plaintiffs in the suit, told NY1, “These are all people whose careers were profoundly disrupted and in many cases destroyed by the use of this test that actually had no predictive reliability in terms of whether or not they were going to be effective teachers.”
