NY Post: Marc Held, Partner at Held & Hines, LLP Quoted in NY Post Re: Class-Action Lawsuit

“The refunds are disgraceful, considering the profits Vallo has made on the backs of these parents and the federal stimulus money the company received,” Held said. Public records show the Queens-based company got between $1 million and $2 million from the feds in April. “Many of the Bronx Science students come from the five boroughs, and are from poor, or low-income families, many who lost their jobs during COVID, and work hard just to be able to afford the transportation,” Held said.


NY POST: Marc Held, Partner at Held & Hines Quoted in Article Re: SHSAT Lawsuit

Attorney Marc Held [of held & Hines, LLP], who represents the parents in the suit, called the mayor’s announcement a “ruse.”
“By not scheduling a date, it is in essence canceled. That remains the mayor’s ultimate goal,” Held said.

City Hall knew the suit would be filed and set the registration dates to avoid bad publicity, the suit claims.
