Upper State New York University Injunction Ratified

July 23, 2012 - PRLog -- New York, NY. July 10, 2012. New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, upheld an appeal in favor of the Student Union Society and faculty of Upper State New York University. At issue was a temporary injunction issued by a lower court in 2008, which ordered the University to remain open until Spring of 2011. The Trustees of USNYU had previously voted to close the school as of 2008, however, the Student Union Society and faculty felt that they had not been given ‘fair and sufficient’ notice of the closure. As remedy, the Student Union Society and faculty petitioned the lower court and received a temporary injunction that was effective as of May 1, 2008. That temporary injunction was ratified today by the New York Supreme Court. An unnamed source speaking on behalf of the Student Union Society stated that he, and his fellow members, ‘…  are delighted that the school stayed open until Spring of 2011 and that they fully complied with all the conditions of the temporary injunction. In doing this, they provided a means by which many students could finish their degree and it was also good for the faculty because they had more time to find positions in other schools.’
