DEFAMATION OF DAVID PAKTER
by the NEW YORK POST, MARCH 21, 2010
On Sunday, March 21, 2010 The NEW YORK POST printed a story that included the statement that Mr. Pakter had been removed from the NYC schools system for quote "sexual misconduct"- a knowingly false statement since the paper had previously written about Pakter in another article about NYC Teachers in March of 2007.
The newspaper attempted to retract the false and Libelous statement one week later on Suday, March 28, 2010 by publishing a "Correction" Notice in a later Edition that included the words that the newspaper had, quote:
"...incorrectly stated the allegations against David Pakter. The Dept of Education only alleges that he was insubordinate. Pakter claims he brought in a plant and offered watches as honor-roll incentives".
( NEW YORK POST, SUNDAY, MARCH 28, 2010 )
Mr. Pakter has filed a $ 10,000,000 (Ten Million) NOTICE OF CLAIM against the NEW YORK POST newspaper as well as the NYC Dept of Education for the publication of false, libelous, defamatory, slanderous statements".
Both the NEW YORK POST newspaper as well as the NYC Dept of Education have been served with papers to appear in NY State Supreme Court on Wednesday, July 21, 2010, at 80 Centre Street, Manhattan, Room 328, at 9:30 A.M. before State Supreme Court Justice, the Hon. Cynthia Kern.
