Bagel Store Class Action Pushed Into 2021 By SDNY Judge Furman

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 12 –    Sebastian Leon filed a putative class action against a six-store bagel company (including Zucker's Grand Central and Murray's Bagels at 242 8th Avenue) in January 2020.

 That was after COVID-19 was spreading in China, but before it reached significantly reached New York. 

 On May 12 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a conference in the case. He said he'd handled many cases filed by plaintiffs' lawyer C.K. Lee and asked why this conference had even been needed.

  It emerged that the six-store group has laid off 70 of 200 employees, even while take-out and delivery has been allowed. (Still the business has not closed, like the ADA case against a Cafe on Orchard Street Inner City Press covered on May 11).

    This bagel case was pushed back, way back. Discovery will run through March 31, 2021, with or without virtual depositions, with the pre-trial conference on April 6, 2021.

 The case is Leon v. Zucker's Bagels Grand Central, LLC et al., 20-cv-713 (Furman).
