District Court Order Reversed by Appellate Term
St. Anthony's High School v. A.W. - Appellate Term, Second Dep't.
We represented a private high school seeking tuition and other educational related expenses. The District Court in Suffolk County dismissed the claim on a motion to vacate a default judgment. We argued that the District Court improperly dismissed the case because it turned a motion to vacate into a motion for summary judgment without giving notice to the parties. The Appellate Court agreed and reinstated the complaint.
