A C.P.L.R. Article 78 Special Proceeding is designed to challenge governmental action, or inaction. Using this vehicle, a civil servant can challenge adverse employment decisions at the State Supreme Court level. The judge hearing the case will review the facts and law, scrutinize the government's conduct, and if necessary, order the agency to correct its actions and/or conduct. Our firm handles cases of this nature that relate to the civil service law.
If you believe that you have been wronged by an agency with respect to your civil service rights, we may be able to help you. Call us for an appointment so that we can discuss your case.
