Glen began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney under Robert Morgenthau in Manhattan.
RG v iD Tech: Glen developed information in civil discovery, which proved that his client’s camp employee had been falsely accused and wrongfully convicted of sexual assault. The counselor’s conviction was overturned by the District of Columbia Superior Court and the case against Glen’s client was dismissed.
AB v Clarkstown Soccer: The United States District Court granted Glen’s motion for summary judgment, dismissing the claims against his client, which employed a coach who was convicted of having an improper relationship with the plaintiff. The court held that Glen’s client was not negligent because it did not have notice of the coach’s propensity for such behavior.
Marmelstein v Kehillat New Hempstead: The New York State Court of Appeals held that Glen’s client, a rabbi, did not owe a fiduciary duty to a congregant who claimed he induced her into an improper relationship. The court dismissed the case.
Jones v Archdiocese of New York: The court granted Glen’s motion for summary judgment, holding that the plaintiff failed to prove that his client knew or should have known that a teacher had the propensity to engage in improper conduct with students.
