LITIGATION: CONTRACT BETWEEN CORONA AND THE TOWN REQUIRES DISMISSAL OF LITIGATION BEFORE SALE OF RCC LAND TO TOWN OF NORTH HEMPSTEAD.
As we indicated previously, we have another court date tomorrow, Wednesday at 9:30 AM. As you know, disposition of our litigation is one of Corona’s conditions to allowing the Town of North Hempstead to purchase the RCC property under the contract they each signed. Only after the Town completes its purchase of the land can it reopen the Roslyn Country Club.
At our last court date, the focus of discussion was exploration of means that would provide for dismissal of our litigation, but NOT become permanent until a transfer of the RCC property to the Town. We think that conversation will continue. The rationale in achieving this would be that the litigation many saw as a means to force the Club open would be a key tool in doing just that. However if the transfer does not occur under such a plan the litigation could be continued by those wishing to do so.
If you wish to attend, it is called for 9:30 a.m. at Nassau County Supreme Court in Judge Janowitz’ courtroom (info here). You should be able to sign in upon arrival.
NOTE THAT AS WE NO LONGER HAVE JOINT COUNSEL, IF YOU ARE A PARTY IN THIS LITIGATION AND DO NOT APPEAR IN PERSON OR BY ATTORNEY, YOU WILL HAVE NO ONE ACTING ON YOUR BEHALF IN COURT. NEITHER THE ROSLYN COUNTRY CLUB CIVIC ASSOCIATION NOR ANY OF ITS REPRESENTATIVES CAN PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE TO YOU. IF YOU REQUIRE LEGAL ADVICE YOU SHOULD SPEAK WITH A LAWYER THAT YOU ENGAGE.

LITIGATION DEVELOPMENTS AND NEXT COURT DATE
COUNTY DEFUNDING EFFORTS DEFEATED BY TONH
CLUB REOPENING EFFORTS AND LITIGATION
Town of North Hempstead and Corona Realty signed agreements to transfer the RCC to the Town
Key “closing condition” in contract requires dismissal of the litigation (by parties formerly represented by our jointly retained lawyer and otherwise) if the land sale is to occur.
As you know, we’ve been in court many times; most recently, possible forms that a dismissal allowing the Town takeover might take were discussed and we anticipate this dialogue will continue.
NEXT COURT DATE
Our next date in court will be January 15 (Nassau Supreme Court-Judge Janowitz’s courtroom).
Because we have no attorneys representing us jointly, you will need to attend in person if your interests are to be represented in Court.
TOWN DEFEATS COUNTY EFFORTS TO DEFUND RCC
You may know the County inexplicably sought to defund the RCC by refusing to levy taxes.
Many were puzzled by the County’s efforts without any apparent basis other than politics.
The Town took the County to court and Nassau County was promptly handed a stinging rebuke by the Judge, who wrote that County “misstated the law” and that the County’s claimed legal basis was “illogical” and “fallacious.”
If and when we learn of developments relating these matters or other items of interest, we will let you know.
We hope to hold a public meeting after any key developments in these items (hopefully soon!).
