Professor Arthur Pinto Quoted in Crain's on New York Court of Appeals Vacancy


Professor Arthur Pinto was quoted in the Jan. 11 Crain’s article “Cuomo remakes the state's highest court” on the governor’s overhaul of the New York Court of Appeals. With a judge’s recent retirement, Cuomo’s pick to fill the vacancy could tip the scales against employers in closely divided cases.

Cuomo is “very cognizant of gender and ethnic diversity," Pinto said. "The thing is, none of them strike me as coming from a strong business litigation background." Pinto also pointed out that the Court of Appeals has historically been "very protective" of New York's employment-at-will doctrine.

Pinto is co-director of The Dennis J. Block Center for the Study of International Business Law. He teaches Agency and Partnership, Contracts, Comparative Corporate Governance, Corporate Law and Corporate Finance. His area of expertise is in United States and comparative corporate law, which he has explored in his writings and having served several times as the National Reporter for the Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law. He has been a frequent visiting lecturer on American corporate and securities law at LUISS University in Rome.
