New York - Kiryas Joel And Monroe Hit With Two Lawsuits In Latest Attempt To Halt Annexation Proceedings

New York - On Friday and again on Monday, two separate lawsuits have been filed against the Orange County villages of Kiryas Joel and Monroe by opponents of the controversial annexation that would result in Kiryas Joel absorbing at least a 164-acre parcel of land from neighboring Monroe.

RECORDONLINE.com (http://bit.ly/1LvPcnV) reports that the lawsuits are the latest attempt to halt the land swap which took a big step forward last month when Monroe officials approved KJ’s smaller 162-acre petition while rejecting the larger 507-acre request.

On Friday, eight neighboring towns and villages jointly filed suit requesting that the Orange County Supreme Court annul annexation approvals by both KJ and Monroe—-as well as KJ’s original petitions—-while also invalidating environmental studies conducted by both parties.

On Monday, opposition organization Preserve Hudson Valley filed a suit in Westchester County Supreme Court charging that the proposed annexation violates the constitutionality of separation of church and state, while at the same time intentionally side-stepping restrictive zoning laws already in place in Monroe.

You are a RASHA MERUSHA, imagine you want to expand and extend your house because of your family is growing and your next door neighbour opposes, what would you do? Exactly the same should be done to you, SHAIGETZ, what harm did satmar do to you? Apart of their enormous worldwide CHESSED organisations and TZEDAKA that they so willingly pour out of their pockets, yes I know that they oppose ZIONISM, but its widely known that when any individual (whether zionist or not) is helped with open arms, shame on you and alike,

so why have zoning or other laws at all, if everyone including satmars/neturei kartas neighbors want to stop them, suddenly you take them to court bec. the laws dont fit you?
