Law suits starting to come in on the Cathie Black appointment chancellor NYC Schools

Eric J. Snyder, a lawyer and a parent with two children in the NYC public schools  filed the first law suit against the appointment of Cathie Black who Mayor Michael Bloomberg secretively appointed NYC Schools Chancellor in November amid  protests, rallies, and a petition with  nearly 12,000 signatures from different groups in the community.
 In a NYTimes story , "he said Friday that he decided to file this latest suit because he was concerned that a school system run by Ms. Black would continue to emphasize standardized testing to the exclusion of a broader, more creative curriculum for his two children, Zoe, a seventh grader at Middle School 51, and Gregory, a 10th grader at La Guardia High School for the performing arts."
Attorney Snyder is a partner in the law firm of Wilk Auslander specializing in creditors' rights and bankruptcy reorganization.
