The firm won an important victory in Scott Roth, et al. v. Board of Managers of 299 West 12th Street Condominium (New York Supreme Court, Index No. 154312/2022). A decision dated October 12, 2023 by Justice Mary Rosado granted Schlam Stone’s clients the right to access privileged documents withheld by the defendants in the case.

Schlam Stone partner Erik Groothuis and counsel Channing Turner represented plaintiffs Scott Roth and the Scott Roth 2001 Trust.
