Queens Library carrying out expensive probe of leaks about director Thomas Galante’s salary, spending

“The Queens Library is spending big bucks to investigate leaks of confidential information about board meetings to the Daily News. Lawyers for six former trustees suing to get their positions back after they were kicked out by Mayor de Blasio and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz revealed in court papers the library has retained a high-powered former federal judge to probe leaks that led to a series of stories in The News about library director Thomas Galante’s $392,000 salary and his free-spending ways. Brooklyn Federal Judge Roslynn Mauskopf recused herself Monday from presiding over the suit because she is a close personal friend of the former federal judge, Barbara Jones, who served on the bench in the Southern District of New York for 16 years before leaving to become a partner at a white shoe law firm.” (via NY Daily News)
