LICH Contempt Hearing On Tomorrow Morning

The Eagle reports that the hearing to determine whether SUNY, its Board of Trustees and officials should be held in contempt for violation of court orders barring actions to close Long Island College Hospital will be held tomorrow (Tuesday, February 18) morning starting at 10:00, with security doors opening at 9:00, at the Kings County Supreme Court, 360 Adams Street, room 469. Justice Johnny Lee Baynes, who issued the orders, will preside. The hearing was previously scheduled for last week, but was delayed because of heavy snow. The hearing had earlier been postponed in order to allow time for the parties–LICH supporters including the Brooklyn Heights Association and Cobble Hill Association, and SUNY–to agree on a settlement. They have not reached an agreement.
