NYC Department of Education Vaccination Mandate (Registration is Officially Closed)
On August 23, 2021, Mayor DeBlasio announced that all Department of Education (DOE) employees including principals, teachers, paras, office staff, custodial staff, etc., will be required to get the Covid 19 vaccination or potentially lose their job. Mark and Lou have literally received hundreds of calls from various members of the DOE requesting our advice and help.
One of the bedrock beliefs at FG Law is great communication and full disclosure lead to satisfied clients. We pride ourselves on keeping our clients updated EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. Obviously, with potentially hundreds or even thousands of clients in this lawsuit it will be extremely difficult to manage personal communications with everyone. To that end, we will communicate with all our clients through email and website every step of the way. Of course, if there are matters that need urgent or personal attention, please do not hesitate to call us.
WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO HEAR FROM OUR CLIENTS.

Q) How much will it cost to join the lawsuit?
A) Mark and Lou understand that litigation can be quite costly and want to ensure that ALL can afford to join the lawsuit. To that end, they are going to greatly discount their legal services. The cost to join the lawsuit will be $500 per person which can be paid through PayPal, Credit Card, or Debit Card. Registration monies will go toward attorney’s fees, out of pockets expenses including Doctors that specialize in infectious diseases and immunization, and administration expenses. We will try to keep logistical costs down as much as possible. If there are not enough people to bring forth the lawsuit, we will return everybody’s money promptly. We expect if there are any additional money needed that it will be minimal.
Q) How likely is it that the lawsuit will be successful?
A) As in any lawsuit we cannot guarantee success. However, we are encouraged by the recent decisions of the United States Supreme Court particularly (Brooklyn Archdioceses vs Cuomo) give us sound legal grounds. Please note: FG Law group completely expects that whether we are successful or not in lower court the case will HAVE to be heard in the Appellate Division and possibly even in the United States Supreme Court.
The initial goal of the lawsuit will be to request an immediate emergency injunction putting a hold on the mandate while the lawsuit navigates the legal system.
Q) What is the final date to join the lawsuit?
A) In order to ensure we have the appropriate level of participation to continue with the lawsuit we request that everyone enrolls in the lawsuit by Thursday, September 16th.
We are at the forefront of the fight against unconstitutional mandates
The Fonte and Gelormino Legal Group (FG Law) have been at the forefront in the fight against the multitude of unconstitutional mandates, decrees, and edicts put forward by former Governor Cuomo, New York State, Mayor DeBlasio, and New York City. As proud members of the Staten Island community, we were honored to offer our services, Pro Bono, to the many restaurant and gym owners that requested our help and were instrumental in assisting them to reopen and get back to business. Most recently we offered our services at a greatly discounted rate to the thousands of NYC teachers who were affected by Mayor DeBlasio’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate. FG Legal Group was honored to bring a Class Action on their behalf which will be heard at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals on October 14.
