2nd Recusal from our cases this week!
by Michael Kane
Within less than 24 hours of being assigned to Kane v. de Blasio and Keil v. NYC, Judge Edgardo Ramos has recused himself at the request of attorneys Sujata Gibson and Jonathan Nelson.
Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald has been assigned to take his place, but she owns up to $250,000 in Pfizer stock and $100,000 in Johnson & Johnson stock. Both companies manufacture covid injections.
A letter has been sent to Judge Buchwald asking her to recuse herself.
Bloomberg Law covered these developments just last night.
