...offered without critical comment.

"Given your blog's discussions of the civil rights cases which are pending on the East End, I though you might find interest in the following.

Earlier today, I received notice from the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, that the Court has dismissed an appeal which had been filed by the Town of Southampton in the case of Alfaro v. The Town of Southampton (one of the cases which had been discussed on your blog)."

(The actual citation is Richard Alfaro v. Barbara Labrador et al, # CV 06-1470.)

"As is done in many civil rights cases, the Town filed a motion to dismiss the Alfaro case in the U.S. District Court in Central Islip.

After the District Court Judge denied the Town's motion to dismiss, the Town filed an appeal with the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, seeking to reverse the Dis­trict Court's decision.

With the Town's federal appeal now having been dismissed, and discovery complete, the Alfaro case will now proceed to trial.

Very truly yours,
Andrew J. Campanelli"

Attorney Campanelli thoughtfully attached a copy of the U.S. Court of Appeals' Decision for review.

Mr. Alfaro's property is the former site of H. Sacks & Sons produce distributors, 674 Mon­tauk Highway in East Quogue.

Locally, Mr. Campanelli is also representing the Muchnicks in their $25 million Federal Civil Rights lawsuit against the Village Board, the Planning Board and various named individuals.

I read yesterday that the Somali pirates who hijacked that Saudi oil tanker are demanding $25 million for its release. You don't think they've hired a certain Long Island lawyer who is fond of that number, do you?

You're looking at this the wrong way, HW... they're more likely to be the defendants who've lost a 1983 Action.
