About CasePrepPlus

CasePrepPlus is an exclusive benefit of membership in the New York State Bar Association.


New York appellate courts release, on average, between 150 and 200 decisions per week. The CasePrepPlus service summarizes the most significant decisions, which include substantive discussions of the facts and the law, into one-paragraph summaries, which are prefaced by succinct headings, allowing the reader to quickly decide whether a case is of interest. Each summary is linked to the full decision. Keeping up with the decisions released the week before, a process which could easily take an individual attorney numerous hours every week, takes only minutes with CasePrepPlus.

Summaries are written by Rochester-based attorney Bruce Freeman. For his bio, click here.

Our thanks to Roy Warner, Esq., the creator of CasePrepPlus, the primary author of the CasePrepPlus service prior to Mr. Freeman’s involvement, and a NYSBA member for over 40 years.




NYU Did Not Act Arbitrarily and Capriciously When It Suspended Three Students for Attending Off-Campus Rooftop Parties in August 2020 Where the Attendees Did Not Wear Masks and Did Not Practice Social Distancing

The First Department, reversing Supreme Court, determined the school (New York University (NYU)) properly suspended three students for attending off-campus, rooftop parties in August 2020 where the attendees did not wear masks or practice social distancing. The First Department found that the general student conduct policies prohibiting behavior that endangers health and safety, the COVID-19 Executive Orders in effect at the time, and emails sent out by the school provided sufficient pre-conduct notice of the prohibited conduct. Matter of Storino v. New York Univ., 2021 N.Y. Slip Op. 02087, First Dept 4-1-21
