Bienstock PLLC Files Amicus Brief on Behalf of Agudath Israel in Historic School Transportation Case
By: Martin Bienstock, Civil Litigator
When courts interpret the law, they are required to focus on the words of the statute. In our brief on behalf of Agudath Israel, we emphasized the difference between the term “sufficient,” which is used in the statute, and the term “adequate,” which the State argued should replace it. But, we showed, “adequate” means barely good enough, and “sufficient” doesn’t carry that meaning. Distinctions like these can make the difference between a successful lawsuit and a failing one.
