The attorney for DCAS and its Commissioner, Edna Handy, has been granted an extension in order to perform more research in response to potential documents required for release under Freedom of Information Law.

The new court return date is Monday, October 7th. If the city’s law department should provide a written response to the petition before then, we will dutifully report on what we learn.

We note optimistically that citizens have won similar cases in the past, in particular when journalist Sergio Hernandez successfully sued Mayor Bloomberg to release information about the ill-planned decision to hire media magnate Cathie Black as the chancellor of the NYC Department of Education.
