Burns Jackson Miller Summit & Spitzer v. Lindner

Burns Jackson Miller Summit & Spitzer v. Lindner, 59 N.Y.2d 314 (1983)

After transit workers went on strike against the New York City Transit Authority, two management labor law firms sued the transit unions for damages, claiming they had suffered economic losses because of the strike. The New York Court of Appeals held unanimously that their lawsuits were legally without merit because the Taylor Law (New York’s statute governing labor relations in the public sector) prohibiting public sector strikes did not entitle anyone allegedly injured because of such a strike to recover damages.
