I would rather see a new Haberman building than another legal surcharge on my tax bill. [opinion]

“The city was dealt another blow last week in its fight against a potentially crippling $50 million lawsuit a developer first filed in 2003 [LB Herald]

“The Habermans are longtime residents of Long Beach. They did not want to inflict an enormous damage claim on the city, They only wanted the right to develop their own property.” [NEWSDAY]

Am I alone when I say this: I’d rather see another building than a lawsuit surcharge on my tax bill. It would spell the end for the beloved kitty condo, but there has to be some room here to cut some sort of deal.  I just think for us to appeal will do nothing, but delay the inevitable in a costly fashion.

Between this and the potential-BS lawsuit iStar is threatening, us residents are really getting hit hard with this legal mess – all situations that we have nothing to do with. I’m not joking when I say how there needs to be another Scoundrels by the Sea book in the works.
