Class Action For NYC Homeless Kids Settles in SDNY While 11 Shelters Still Have No Wi-Fi

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 6 – A class action seeking to vindicate the rights of homeless children in shelters to receive a sound education during the COVID-19 pandemic was filed against New York City on November 24, 2020.

  On September 3, 2021, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alison J. Nathan held a fairness hearing, by phone. Inner City Press called in and covered it.

  The Coalition for the Homeless has said NYC has "begun installing WiFi in homeless shelters and have substantially completed installation in the Shelters contemplated by the Settlement as of August 31, 2021... Eleven shelters do not have in-unit WiFI installed.  

 Judge Nathan noted that the call in number had been posted on the door of her courtroom in 40 Foley Square.

The phone lines were unmuted to ask if anyone on had an objection. None was heard. So the settlement is accepted.

The case is E.G. et al v. City of New York et al., 20-cv-9879 (Nathan)
