Mealey's Labor & Employment - Plaintiffs: Judge Disqualified Once She Decided To Join Firm Chaired By NYU Trustee

NEW YORK - Plaintiffs claiming that New York University made imprudent investments in retirement plans for members of faculty, research staff and school administration on Oct. 1 moved to vacate a judge's ruling in favor of NYU and for new trial, contending that the judge was disqualified from presiding over their lawsuit once she decided to leave the federal district court and join a law firm that is chaired by a NYU trustee who has direct responsibility for monitoring the fiduciary conduct at issue (Dr. Alan Sacerdote, et al. v. New York University, No. 16- 6284, S.D. N.Y.).
