Law360 Covers Steptoe’s Success for Interstate Hotels & Resorts

March 5, 2015

Steptoe’s latest success for Interstate was covered by Law360 in a February 26 article titled “Peeved NY Judge Sends Hotel Union Spat To Southern District.”  The article discusses the ruling by Judge Leo I. Glasser that approved the request sought by Interstate, which is among the parties being sued by the Lam Group, to transfer litigation from the Eastern District of New York to the Southern District.  The article notes that in his ruling, Judge Glasser remarked that the plaintiffs’ decision to file the case in the Eastern District “reeks of forum shopping.”

Steptoe’s Cecelia Fanelli has represented Interstate throughout a long and complicated series of litigations, and this ruling allows the most recent case to move to a venue where two additional related cases will proceed.
