Pakter Vs. NY Post/NYCDOE: Supreme Court June 16 Hearing at 9:30 AM before Justice Cynthia Kern

We know how teachers feel about the NY press, but they have a particular feeling about Rupert Murdoch's NY Post. For those who can make it to this hearing, the big UFT rally at City Hall is the afternoon of the 16th so make it a twofer.- Norm

On March 21, 2010 The NEW YORK POST printed a story that included the statement that Mr. Pakter had been removed from the NYC schools system for quote "sexual misconduct"- a knowingly false statement since the paper had previously written about Pakter in another article about NYC Teachers in March of 2007.

The newspaper attempted to retract the false and Libelous statement one week later on March 28, 2010 by publishing a "Correction" Notice in a later Edition that included the words that the newspaper had, quote:

"incorrectly stated the allegations against David Pakter. The Dept of Education only alleges that he was insubordinate. Pakter claims he brought in a plant and offered watches as honor-roll incentives".


Mr. Pakter has already filed a $ 10,000,000 (Ten Million) NOTICE OF CLAIM against the NEW YORK POST newspaper as well as the NYC Dept of Education for the publication of false, libelous, defamatory, slanderous statements".

Both the NEW YORK POST newspaper as well as the NYC

Dept of Education have been served with papers to appear in

NY State Supreme Court

on June 16, Wednesday

at 80 Centre Street, Manhattan,

Room 328, at 9:30 A.M.

State Supreme Court Justice, the Hon. Cynthia Kern, Presiding

If we had a true union, it would have sued Chancellor Slime for libel and slander, as well as the NY Post, News, and Times everytime he stated that ATRs "are bad teachers because they have not been hired" or words to that effect. It's clear cut libel and slander, and minimally would have shut Slimes's horrid mouth.

But we don't have a union, instead they are our enemies who are only concerned with continuing their double salary and pension runs.

Klein once said "as an attorney he knows there is to know about the due process", actually he meant to say that he knows there is to know how to violate the due process.
