Schlam Stone & Dolan won a crucial appellate victory for a doctor against whom sensational criminal accusations had been made. After the doctor was convicted, his trial counsel brought in Harvey Stone, who prevailed in a court known for rarely overturning criminal convictions. This victory led to a new trial and subsequent acquittal in which the jury cleared the doctor of all charges.
On August 15, 2016, the New York Law Journal reported on a lawsuit filed by Schlam Stone & Dolan on behalf of Beltway 7 Properties, LLC against BlackRock Inc. and affiliated entities arising out of a Mezzanine Loan Agreement. The lawsuit seeks restitution of approximately $844,000 in late fees and interest charged by BlackRock that Beltway alleges was an unenforceable penalty. Schlam Stone Dolan partner Jeffrey M. Eilender was quoted, saying that “this is a situation where the borrower did everything right. This whole thing is supposed to be analyzed under equity, what is fair.” Beltway is being represented by Mr. Eilender and associate Seth D. Allen.
Schlam Stone & Dolan partner Jonathan Mazer was quoted by Law360 in an article concerning Congressional regulatory hearings. Mr. Mazer noted that: "While popular with riders, existing stakeholders in the ground transportation space — often carefully regulated themselves — view limited regulatory scrutiny of ride-hailing companies as unfair . . . . The pressure to make regulation more even across providers who are ultimately providing similar services to customers is likely to continue and intensify."
