On Thursday, June 4th, we introduced you to Attorney Scott E. Wortman, and we announced that NL has enlisted him as the primary blogger for the CreditorsRightsLawFirms.com (CRLF) website. His contributions are certain to make the CRLF website and blog an even more valuable source of information for creditors’ rights attorneys and for those who visit the site looking for a creditors’ rights attorney.
On Friday, June 5th, we published Scott’s first blog on the CRLF website, “To Moot or Not to Moot.” In it, Scott discusses the background of, the meaning behind and takeaways from The Second Circuit Court of Appeals release of its much-anticipated decision in Tanasi v. New Alliance Bank.
You won’t want to miss Scott’s explanation of and opinions on the decision, which addresses whether the United States District Court properly denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss on the ground that plaintiff’s putative class action claims remained justiciable, even though the plaintiff’s claims were rendered moot by an unaccepted Offer of Judgment for complete relief made pursuant to Rule 68 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
As a Partner at Warshaw Burstein, LLP, a New York City based law firm that has provided market leading legal services to the financial industry at large for more than 80 years, Scott is eminently qualified to blog about this and other important CRLF issues. Please take a minute to access and follow the CRLF blog. Then everything Scott writes will be automatically delivered to you via email.
