Matter of Momot v Rensselaer County, Hudson Valley Community College

Petitioner, John Momot, commenced this appeal to review a determination by the Supreme Court dismissing his petition finding no probably cause to support claim of unlawful discriminatory practice relating to education.

Petitioner was a student at Hudson Valley Community College. He filed a complaint with the State Division of Human Rights alleging that Hudson Valley discriminated against him by engaging in a conspiracy with various government agencies to use young female students to tempt him, distort his reputation, and dismiss him from the college. The Division determined that petitioner’s allegations were unfounded and absurd. Petitioner then commenced a proceeding to challenge the determination. The Supreme Court dismissed the petition and this appeal ensued. The Court did not find the determination to be arbitrary and capricious and found no evidence to support petitioner’s accusations.

Accordingly, the Court affirmed the decision.
