Litigation Against the City for the 2.25% Differential

January 29, 2019

On Tuesday, January 29, 2019, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Robert R. Reed issued his decision on our Promissory Estoppel case seeking the 2.25% Differential. Judge Reed ruled in our favor, denying the City’s motion to dismiss. By denying the City’s motion, Judge Reed breathes life into our lawsuit seeking the 2.25% differential. The City must now answer the complaint; and the preliminary conference before Judge Reed is scheduled for Thursday, February 21, 2019. We do not yet know if the City plans to appeal this decision.


Here’s the backstory: On July 21, 2017, the DEA and other members of the Uniformed Contract Coalition filed a lawsuit in Supreme Court against the City of New York regarding the PBA differential.
