Ms. Myers played a leading role in a groundbreaking victory before the United States Supreme Court. Ms. Myers was part of a team that represented a group of small New York landlords and the Rent Stabilization Association of NYC, Inc. in a constitutional challenge to New York State’s COVID-19 eviction moratorium. In its ruling, the Court held that the moratorium scheme violated “the Court’s longstanding teaching that ordinarily ‘no man can be a judge in his own case’ consistent with the Due Process Clause.” According to Reuters, the decision marked the first time the Supreme Court granted an emergency injunction to private litigants outside the religious liberties context since the inception of the pandemic, after nearly 100 prior applications had been denied.
Ms. Myers also represents pro bono clients in civil and immigration matters. She represents victims of domestic violence in immigration matters, children with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and parents who have children with disabilities in the public education system.
