A New York state administrative law judge has ruled that billionaire former hedge fund manager Julian H. Robertson Jr. spent only 183 days in New York City in 2000, As a result, the ALJ ruled that Robertson was not a New York City resident because he spent at least half of the year outside elsewhere and thus was not liable for $47.7 million in New York City income taxes and interest for that year.
