In a Brooklyn courthouse, the Sheepshead Bay People's request for a Temporary Restraining Order was denied earlier today. The Bay People legal team is planning to appeal.
More dhimmitude from our political, judicial elites. Tragic.
Hon. Mark I. Partnow
Supreme Court - Kings County
360 Adams Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201
UPDATE: From the Bay People:
This morning in Kings County Supreme Court, Judge Mark Porntnow denied our request for a preliminary injunction in the face of plaintiffs’ affidavits, expert reports and countless violations, illegal excavation, and lies by Allowey Ahmed and the mosque builders. Portnow denied a preliminary injunction without giving a reason for his decision. He ruled from the bench within minutes, which appears that his ruling was pre-determined. Deek, the defense attorney, had only one argument, the “race card” and called Bay People and Sheepshead Bay residents racists and terrorists and added that there are hundreds and hundreds Muslim families living in Sheepshead Bay and that they will all walk to the mosque and not drive.
Our next steps would be to appeal this decision immediately. Moreover we are commencing an action against the New York City Department of Buildings for failing to adequately consider our zoning challenge via unreasonable delays and erroneously granting a building permit in the face of numerous violations on lies on the application.
This fight is far from over and we as homeowners and residents of this community will employ every possible avenue to ensure that this peaceful and quiet residential street remains just that-RESIDENTIAL. We have NOT, repeat, have NOT exhausted our administrative remedies in the Department of Buildings, which are in month 9 (yes since October of 2010) of looking out our zoning challenge.
Please note that building permits may be taken away at any time and with this request for an injunction we were merely attempting to halt construction until the DOB renders a final decision on our zoning challenge. We will of course, proceed in our case against the DOB as soon as possible.
