Parliamentary Law and Sources of Conflict
When challenges or conflicts arise over decisions made or the way a body conducts business, these disputes may eventually find their way into court. There, a judge will decide whether the board acted appropriately or not. The judge’s decision will be based on an interpretation of the rules and procedures used, based on arguments and evidence presented by lawyers on both sides of the dispute.
Having parliamentary rules that are clearly and appropriately written, as well as representation from an experienced parliamentary law litigator, are both critical to determining how the court’s ruling will turn out. New York attorney Harry D. Lewis is experienced in litigation related to parliamentary matters. For example, he previously handled Article 78 litigation against a local government in New York for willful and repeated violations of the Open Meetings Law.
