New Yorkers for Students’ Educational Rights (NYSER) v. State of New York has asked State Supreme Court Justice Manuel Mendez to restore $1 billion in aid due to school districts throughout the state immediately, even before the case goes to trial. We will be joined by co-counsel for the plaintiffs Michael A. Rebell, Professor of Law and Educational Practice at Columbia Teachers College, who was also co-counsel for the plaintiffs in the successful Campaign for Fiscal Equity case against the state.

Albany Law School’s Dr. Vin Bonventre, founder and Editor of State Constitutional Commentary & author of the NY Court Watcher Blog, joins us to breakdown recent rulings from the Supreme Court of the United States.

What does upstate New York need to break out of its economic malaise? Attorney Rich Honen, a partner in the Albany office of Phillips Lytle, and expert on start-up business, high tech and venture capital tells us what he thinks.
