Adam, I was out of town attending to a sick family matter so I apologize for the delay in thisRead More comment, but I would be remiss not to say a big THANK YOU for sharing this information with the public. You write so eloquently; but of course I would expect nothing less from a fellow Hoya ;). To my friend Glenn Howard, this is not a "non-monetary lawsuit" as you termed it. Rather, the alleged damages sought by the lawsuit have yet to be determined. In other words, the City could be seeking a gazillion dollars from the hospital, they just didn't put a specific dollar amount in their complaint. I am going to copy and paste the language directly from the complaint that shows what the city is seeking in damages in the following post so that everyone can read it and see for themselves. I hope that the hospital stays open and continues to provide all the services it presently provides for the sake of its employees and all of the residents who live in the area. The purpose of exposing this lawsuit is not to detract from that goal at all. Rather, it is to show that putting all our hope in the Mayor to work with the hospital to accomplish that goal is defeatist. Obviously, based on what we can read from the court record, there exists a very contentious relationship between the hospital and the current City administration at best. Why would they work with someone who is suing them? The hospital is of the opinion that the lawsuit is frivolous and that it was initiated by the Mayor unilaterally and without supporting evidence. No wonder they want to cut and run, and any actions by the Mayor now to try to "save Glen Cove Hospital" are just for show for the voting public because he must know that his actions against the hospital were at least a contributing factor to their decision, if not the direct cause. If he really wanted to do everything in his power to stop the closing of the hospital, unless there is evidence that the hospital really did pollute the water supply, he should offer to discontinue the lawsuit if the hospital remains open, or at least work out some sort of settlement along those lines.
