Congratulations to Michelle on a fantastic win in a declaratory judgment and defamation action involving First Amendment issues in Kings County! Michelle filed a pre-answer motion to dismiss arguing that the court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the matter as the action involves issues of religious doctrine in which the First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the Court from interfering. The court agreed with Michelle’s arguments and granted the motion in its entirety, resulting in a complete dismissal of the case.

Stellar work, Michelle!
