We are pleased to announce that a unique case brought by this office in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and then appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has been certified to the New York State Court of Appeals.  Today’s New York Law Journal article by Mark Hamblett discusses the facts.  The Second Circuit wrote:  “We conclude that whether a bail bond agent may retain a premium following the rejection of the bond raises an unresolved question of New York law that is appropriately certified to the New York Court of Appeals.”
