Casino referendum could wind up in Appelate appeals
Via CBS 6 Albany tv today....Judge Platkin who heard arguments today about the wording of the referendum on the Nov ballot... indicated that his decision...which will be rendered next week...could be appealed all the way up to the highest court....Appelate division One has to wonder if this Brookyn attorney is just a hired gun to throw a monkey wrench into the Nov referendum and kick it off the ballot entirely.
The Judge should of asked this Brooklyn lawyer if he was retained by anyone to fight the referendum. But apparently that never happened. Instead of flooding the airwaves ...tv..radio...newspapers...with the benefits of a yes vote they chose instead to place an advertising campaign so to speak on the actual ballot come Election day. Now they left the door wide open to never getting the referendum on the ballot with appeal after appeal. I would bet the ranch this Brooklyn attorney was hired by someone with very deep pockets to put a dagger on the casino vote...maybe Trump, Indian tribes etc.
dit.imo who retained him is of no matter.Snyder seems to have strong
Aarguments.Bd of electionswanting to dismiss due to snydrrs late filing now seems like a longshot.imo Judge RP is in berween a rock and a hard place
from what i read thebkln bankruptcy law partner snyder seems to have gotten the upper hand over the bd of elections lawyer..From what came out in the press about the hearing the wording may be dropped..Where is the mayor when we need him and BLD seems to have sold out and not chased
