GREENWICH VILLAGE — A New York University Law trustee’s company wants two students to hand over their personal emails after they circulated a letter criticizing him, according to a subpoena.
The law students, second-year Luke Herrine and first-year Leo Gertner, were targeted after they helped circulate a letter denouncing NYU Law School trustee Daniel Straus, who owns Care One Management, a home health aide and nursing home company embroiled in a labor dispute.
The pair were among a group of students who gathered signatures on a letter that raised concerns about Care One Management’s treatment of its workers, including violations from the National Labor Relations Board, and asked the law school’s dean to meet with them to discuss the issue.
