THE BRONX - A judge halted the firings of more than 200 MTA station agents today, ruling the transit authority must post notices about public hearings regarding the layoffs.

Last month the MTA laid off 250 agents, claiming the workers weren?t required to keep subway booths open. The MTA blames the layoffs on its $800 million budget crisis.

The president of Transport Workers Union Local 100 calls the ruling a victory for subway safety and security, while the MTA says it is disappointed by the judge?s opinion.
