Francesco Portelos v DOE 12 CV 3141

It has been a long time coming, but we finally go to trial this Monday August 15, 2016.

Over four years. Over 900 phone calls between my attorney Bryan Glass, Esq. and I. Not to mention over 3,800 emails between us. 23 court appearances and court phone conferences. Almost 80,000 pages of documents exchanged between us and the City.

Can’t write too much now as we continue to prep for the trial. No matter what, I thank all of you for your great support. Now we finish this.
