Mohegan Lake Legal Defense Fund

History of this site

This site was originally set up to fight 3 of 5 zoning variances proposed by the FBC development at Sagamore Trail and Mohegan Ave that eliminates two single family homes while nearly quadrupling the parking and occupancy loads of the old Lakeland Jewish Center. That effort failed and the application is currently before the Planning Board.

While Save Mohegan Lake will continue to update you on that issue, we are moving on to all issues affecting the lake, such as Mohegan Lake Improvement District (MLID) meetings, agenda and budget. This site is not an official mouthpiece for MLID, but some updates will be provided on this site; the official site is located here.

We do it all here, so long as it's Mohegan Lake related. Feel free to submit comments, content, garage sale notices, police blotters, PSA's, essays on the virtues of our 105 acre ice rink, rants, raves, etc... We love it all.

Update On Zoning Board/Faith Bible Lawsuit

So, as it were, I'm in the highest court in the land (of New York State).  Thankfully it's located in Brooklyn Heights, about 15 minutes from my office.  It's official title is:

Appellate Division - Second Judicial Department

The courthouse is such a stately building on a movie-set block of brownstones.  So I'm hanging out in the attorney's lounge, pictured below.  That's really about it.  I don't have much more to this story.

How cool are all those pictures of judges?  The clock being off center bothers me.  Or does it? Actually, I'm pretty cool with all the asymmetry in this photo.
Why am I telling you this?  Because it's after midnight and I just got through another day of busting my ass to prove to the Court that what's right is right, and that I'm right.  Will share my reply brief with you after it's complete.  Here's my brief, in the meantime. 

Oh, and for all you pro se petitioner's out there.  If you ever make it this far, and your adversaries reply to your brief by mail at the last minute--the normal 10 day period for you to serve a reply brief is extended to 15 days.  Thank the lord, because I really needed the additional time.  Since it lands on a Saturday I actually get 2 extra days and can serve and file on the 21st.  And that, Mohegan Lake, is today's lesson.
