Back in August 19, 2009, New York law firm Tilem & Campbell, PC filed a lawsuit against two Bronx Supreme Court Clerks who routinely violated the law by rejecting papers that were submitted for filing without legal reason. As reported in the today’s New York Law Journal, the case was settled earlier this week after New York’s Chief Administrative Judge, the Honorable Ann T. Pfau, promulgated a new Court rule which set forth only four circumstances in which clerks may reject papers for filing. The new rule and the settlement were laid out in a blog on this site earlier this week.
Law partners Peter Tilem and Peter Tilem were both quoted in today’s New York Law Journal article. The law suit was previously reported in the Law Journal when it was originally filed. The first article appeared in the August 25, 2009 edition of the Journal.
