Denial of Immediate Appeal of Decision Granting Partial Judgment Against Westchester

Westchester Case

April 9, 2009 decision denying the County’s attempt to appeal the decision immediately and get the trial delayed. Among other things, the decision stated that “the defendant has also repeatedly mischaracterized the [opinion granting partial judgment against the County.]”  [page 7, fn. 3]  The County’s prediction of a “stream of follow-on lawsuits,” the Court also wrote, depends at least on several things occurring, including “the defendant and other jurisdictions not taking their requirements to affirmatively further fair housing seriously and being unwilling to reform their practices…”  [page 8]
