State Senator Hails Cloister TRO by GS2Law as “Huge”

September 11, 2020 News

New York State Senator Jessica Ramos hailed the granting of a temporary restraining order, vacating the State Liquor Authority’s summary order of suspension as “huge” in Page Six today and hopes that the Cloister Café case brought by Rob Garson, Kevin Kehrli, and Jacob Pargament of GS2Law will “change the way the State Liquor Authority approaches businesses.”

In The Cloister East, Inc., et al. v. New York State Liquor Authority et al., Index No. 157157/2020, New York Supreme Court Justice Engoron scheduled a substantive hearing for October 5, 2020, and in the interim period gave back the Cloister Café its liquor license so that it can open in the interim period. It is believed that this is the first case that has challenged the SLA’s exercise of its emergency suspension powers and it is hoped that this case can bring about meaningful change and be the catalyst for establishing constitutionally compliant procedures in summary suspension process.
