ZANE AND RUDOFSKY SUCCESSFULLY REPRESENTS THE NEW YORK STATE CLOSERS ASSOCIATION IN AN ACTION CHALLENGING CERTAIN STATE REGULATIONS.
New York, NY, January 16, 2019: Zane and Rudofsky successfully represents the New York State Closers Association in an action challenging certain State Regulations.
Eric S. Horowitz, partner of Zane and Rudofsky, successfully fought on behalf of the New York State Closers Association (NYSCA) to revoke portions of Regulations recently enacted by the NYS Department of Financial Services which, amongst other items,
limited the compensation title closers were entitled to receive. In that regard, Eric S. Horowitz filed Amicus Curiae Briefs on behalf of the Association in support of (i) a Supreme Court proceeding which
ultimately resulted in the revocation of the Regulations, and (ii) the subsequent Appellate Division review of the Supreme Court's Decision. Although portions of the Regulations were reinstated by the
Appellate Division, those portions which the Association objected to, and with respect to which our firm filed an Amicus Curiae Brief with the Appellate Court were not reinstated on appeal.
The case, In re New York State Land Title Association, Inc. v. New York State Department of Financial Services, No. 151562/18 (N.Y. App. Div. 1st Dep't, Jan. 15, 2019),
has been mentioned on multiple legal news websites.
