Law Offices of Jonathan Cooper May '11 Newsletter


This month's newsletter is a bit unusual in that it covers two stories of outrageous behavior with one thing in common: people showing remarkable disregard for the safety of children. The first pertains to school negligence; the latter involves a toy manufacturer who ignored the federal lead paint regulations - even though these laws have been in effect since early 2009.

One other thing: you may want to check out an article that didn't make it into this month's newsletter: How New York's Day Care Licensing Requirements Fail New Yorkers
