Sometimes I bring a case to your attention because it does a nice job of summarizing the law, even though the case itself breaks no new ground. O'Neill v. New York University, ____Misc. 3d____(N.Y. Co. June 30, 2012), is such a case. The court dismissed a wrongful termination suit brought by a doctor at NYU. In so doing, the court did a nice job of summarizing the employment at will doctrine and its limited exceptions under New York law. The court also dismissed a defamation claim on the basis of opinion. For those interested in the employment at will doctrine in New York, it is certainly worth a read.
