Stroock Success on Behalf of Congressman Jerry Nadler

New York, NY, July 30, 2008 -- Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, a leading national law firm with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, won a favorable ruling today on behalf of its client, Congressman Jerry Nadler, at the New York City Board of Elections.  Jerry H. Goldfeder of Stroock represented  Congressman Jerry Nadler in the case, which involved a challenge to the designating petition of Democratic Party primary election opponent Adam Sullivan.  

The Board of Elections sustained the objections to Sullivan.  Sullivan was disqualified as a candidate because he was not an enrolled Democrat and, therefore, cannot run in the Democratic primary.  Congressman Nadler will now run unopposed in the September 9, 2008, Democratic primary.  

"This legal victory will ensure that a strong and important voice for New York will continue in the Congress," said Mr. Goldfeder, Congressman Nadler's attorney.  

Jerry Goldfeder is a member of Stroock’s Government Relations and Litigation practice groups.  Mr. Goldfeder’s practice includes representing elected officials, candidates for public office, partnerships, unions  and corporations in the areas of campaign finance, voting rights and public integrity defense.   Mr. Goldfeder also represents clients with interests in pending legislation and regulatory issues in New York City, Albany and Washington DC.
