Hofstra Law Review


Mark J. Fox


If we are to justify the preservation of the special protection provided to municipalities by notice of claim requirements, then these laws must be drafted and interpreted in a manner that affords relief to the meritorious claimant while thwarting deception and fraud so as to protect the municipal treasury. By allowing the municipal corporation to make an early investigation of claims, General Municipal Law §50-e accomplishes the latter. It fails, however, as to the former and should, therefore, be reformed in the manner suggested.
