A court grievance committee will not launch an investigation into East Ramapo attorney Albert D'Agostino's verbal barrage against a high school student, according to a letter from the committee.
Charlene Williams-Pulakos asked the Tenth Judicial District grievance committee to investigate an incident in which D'Agostino called her 17-year-old son, Nicholas, a profane name after a school board meeting. Williams-Pulakos is the supervising court attorney for the Bronx criminal court.
The student was attending a board meeting in Spring Valley to rally with his peers against proposed changes to graduation at the district's high schools. After the meeting, Nicholas Pulakos asked D'Agostino if he was threatening school district activist Steve White.

White filed a report with the Ramapo Police Department last week that says he was cursed at by D'Agastino after the board meeting.
The letter from the court says that the allegations of rudeness are "troubling" but do not warrant an investigation.
"Although I find it unfortunate that the committee has thus far decided not to pursue my complaint, I consider them and Mr. D'Agostino on notice of his behavior and conduct," Charlene Pulakos said.
D'Agostino declined to comment Monday.
