Plaintiff contested a ruling by the Supreme Court of Suffolk County New York which largely granted Defendant’s motion to dismiss a breach of contract and unjust enrichment claim made by a fourth-year student because classes were changed from in-person to online during the COVID-19 pandemic roughly six weeks prior to the end of the semester. Plaintiff graduated on time notwithstanding the switch from in-person to online classes. Despite a grueling oral argument and subsequent rulings, the Appellate Division, Second Department (the “Court”) affirmed the Trial Court ruling with costs in favor of our client. The Court highlighted that the complaint made general assertions lacking concrete commitments significantly affecting the plaintiff’s association with the college.
Outstanding work, Dianna!
