Dog camp wins first of five Stuyvesant suits

May 31, 2012 1:48 am
Judge Patrick McGrath ruled in favor of the Glencadia Dog Camp May 21 on an Article 78 case, in the ongoing battle between that small business and the town of Stuyvesant. "Ordered and adjudged that the petition is granted without costs to the extent that the [ZBA's] determination is annulled and the permit to operate as a Class 2 home Occupation shall be restored: and it is further ordered and adjudged that the matter is hereby remitted to the respondent ZBA for a review and determination on the narrow issue of the notice of violation dated August 9. 201O, consistent with this decision. This shall constitute the Decision, Order and Judgment of the Court." Glencadia owner Will Pflaum comments on his blog: "Well, $300,000 later, that suit is done. Four more to go." Sam Pratt, at his blog, outlines the four cases:
• "Pflaum v. Stuyvesant, a Federal case in which he alleges “assessment fraud, invoice fraud criminal activity, embezzlement, [and] fraud” (March 2011);
• Pflaum v. Narzynski, an “equal protection” case involving zoning, which argues that “the ZBA secretary is running a business forbidden by the ordinance” (Feb. 2012);
• Pflaum v. Naegeli, A Freedom of Information Law case, arguing that the Town is “hiding information” (Feb. 2012); and
• Pflaum v. Knott, another “equal protection” case about zoning, arguing that “the Town Supervisor needs a permit for his business” (Apr. 2012)."
