9/26/2018 - Huntington Town Attorney’s Office Files Appeal on LIPA Decision as Mediation Begins

Huntington – Huntington Town Attorney Nicholas Ciappetta released a statement regarding an appeal his office filed September 25, 2018, on the decision issued in the third-party beneficiary case from the LIPA lawsuit:

 

“The Town of Huntington formally filed an appeal of Justice Emerson’s erroneous decision granting summary judgment to LIPA and National Grid.  The Town is confident that Justice Emerson will be reversed by the Appellate Division because her decision disregards clearly established binding case law, incorrectly interprets the meaning of the section of the Power Supply Agreement that is at the heart of this case, and disregards a mountain of evidence supporting the Town’s contention that LIPA and National Grid did not have the legal right to file a tax certiorari claim.”

 

The first date for non-binding mediation between the Town of Huntington, the Northport-East Northport School District, LIPA and National Grid is September 26. The tax certiorari trial is scheduled to begin in December.
