Sentosa Care Lawsuit May Go To Trial
The long-running Sentosa Care lawsuit continued last week when New York Judge Stephen A. Bucaria denied Sentosa Care's latest attempt to have the lawsuit dismissed. A grant of Summary Judgment would have been an unusual remedy in a case that has lasted four years and meandered through several courts. The ruling now appears to set the stage for a full trial between the Phillipine nurses and their old employer.
The matter began in 2006 when a group of nurses walked off their jobs at the nursing home. The nurse's lawsuit filings have alleged unfavorable working conditions and unfair contractual clauses. Sentosa Care contends that the walk-off was illegal.
