Guido v. State Teachers’ Retirement Sys.

94 N.Y.2d 64 (1999).  We successfully represented a retired teacher whose effort to receive full credit in the Teachers’ Retirement System (“TRS”) for prior service as a lifeguard had been rejected by the TRS, the Supreme Court, Albany County, and the Appellate Division, Third Department.  The Court of Appeals agreed with us that the correct construction of the statute, in light of its legislative history, required the teacher to receive the full credit he was seeking.
