The local weekly newspaper The Saugerties Times reported on the public outcry at Monday’s village board meeting: “A Civil Action”. Saugerties residents were in an uproar over the lawsuit filed by a village police officer against the Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy. For those just tuning in, the Editorial by Will Dendis provides a helpful summary, which gives some context for this recent showing of public outrage. This week’s edition of the newspaper also contains a Letter to the Editor about the lawsuit by Meyer A. Rothburg entitled “Lawsuit by police officer frivolous.”
