Victory for Portville District Benefits Schools Across New York State

Attorneys from Hodgson Russ LLP, led by Hugh M. Russ, III and Julia M. Hilliker, secured a victory on behalf of client Portville Central School District at the New York State Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals is New York State’s highest court. The decision, which protects the school district’s statutory right to terminate a non-tenured administrator at any point during a statutorily mandated three-year probationary period, constitutes a victory for all districts and school boards statewide.
