Article 78 proceedings in state supreme court very rarely overturn an initial decision by a lower court. You must show the court's determination was arbitrary and capacious which is very difficult to prove. Public Officials have broad latitude and discretion in decision making and the court system recognizes that. A denial based on past arrest and conviction is about as bulletproof as it comes. Again, I did not say you should be or would be denied, but if you are.. good luck.Thank you. I have 2 Attorney s working on it. I will appeal it if need be and that nonsense about they have the final word has no clue as to how our system works.
