State Supreme Court amends temporary restraining order against UB

A New York State Supreme Court Judge amended Sub-Board I’s temporary restraining order against UB earlier today.

The TRO –– originally issued June 26 –– now states that UB is restrained from removing SBI operations until July 31.

The judge removed the paragraph which stated UB must rescind all May 6 decisions it has already implemented.

UB issued a statement further clarifying that SBI may continue operations until the end of the fiscal year –– July 31.

“The university is pleased the State Supreme Court clarified the temporary restraining order issued last week. The university and UB’s student governments are free to appoint a new fiscal agent for the upcoming academic year,” the statement said.

The updated TRO will remain in effect until July 31, following the previously scheduled July 24 court hearing.
