Medgar Evers Suspension For CM Cumbo Now Headed To Settlement Conference In SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 8 – Sakia Fletcher's lawsuit for being suspendec from Medgar Evers College after criticizing City Council member Laurie Cumbo is headed to a settlement conference on January 25, 2021, it was discussed on Tuesday.    

 On December 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held an initial pre-trial conference in the case. Inner City Press covered it.   

While some copies of the video of the shouting at the April 19, 2019 Community Board 9 meeting in Brooklyn are now off-line, here is one still up, here.

 “This is why we fail as a people,” Cumbo tells Fletcher. “You say one thing, but another time when you’re passing these proposals … it’s against the community,” Fletcher answers. 

 On December 8, Judge Caproni decided to hold off filing the case management plan until after the settlement conference, to be held by SDNY Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron.

She extended the time for Rudy Crew to answer Alexis McLean's cross-claim until February 8.

The case is Fletcher v. Medgar Evers College et al., 20-cv-4163 (Caproni)
