The hijacking of law and order in New York just may have bottomed out last week. One of Public Corruption’s favorite tricks has been controlling the flow of information, mostly through manipulating the press. But certain public officials, intent on covering their misdeeds, went too far for one U.S. Federal District Court Judge, the Hon. Charles L. Brieant.
The Federal Court Decision will be posted soon; here’s the Press Release:
THE WESTCHESTER GUARDIAN
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A Judgement for Legal fees and expenses was granted and signed by U.S District Court Judge Charles L. Brieant on March 20th, awarding the Law office of Lovett and Gould nearly fifty thousand dollars. A permanent Injunction was also signed and made final.
Sam Zherka, the publisher of the Westchester Guardian says that, “finally the First Amendment is alive and well in Yonkers. We now intend to increase our presence in Yonkers. We currently have 100 News racks and that number will go to 125. We also intend to place wired news racks inside Yonkers City Hall as early as next week.”
“We will now start working on the 10 remaining lawsuits against Yonkers for punitive and compensatory damages. We also intend to challenge the Constitutionality of laws and ordinances in over 100 other municipalities.”
The Judgement also dismisses all summonses issued to Sam Zherka and Westchester Guardian employees for handing out Newspapers in alleged violation of Section 100.35.
“This is a complete victory!” said Zherka.
