Times Union: Scuffle over Scaffold Law goes on

On Friday, the labor-backed Center for Popular Democracy filed its own FOIL query for all materials related to the Civil Justice Institute’s initial “Request for Proposals” inviting scholars to undertake the report, plus any other communications between the institute and the anti-Scaffold Law entities since January 2013.

The Center for Popular Democracy in April issued “Fatally Flawed,” a broadside against the Rockefeller Institute study.

“We are now turning our sights on the money trail that financed this bogus work,” said Connie Razza, the center’s director of strategic research, in a statement. “Industry should not be allowed to try to buy credibility from institutions like SUNY.”
