Burka v. N.Y. City Transit Auth., 739 F. Supp. 814 (S.D.N.Y. 1990)
The firm’s client, a public bus operator, was suspended for 60 days after allegedly testing positive for marijuana. After trial, a federal court held that the procedures used in the disciplinary proceeding leading to the adjudication that he had ingested marijuana and to his suspension violated constitutional due process. Thereafter, the suspension was overturned and the firm’s client was awarded backpay.
