NY-U.S. CONFLICT INTENSIFIES
COOPERSTOWN – The Erie County clerk, Michael “Mickey” Kearns, is expected to file suit today to block the state’s “Green Light” law, according to attendees at the state Association of County Clerks strategy session yesterday in Syracuse.
Otsego County’s Kathy Sinnott Gardner and Saratoga County’s Craig Hayner said they learned of Kearns’ intent at the meeting, called by the association’s president, Judy Hunter of Steuben County.
Sinnott Gardner said she was unsure whether Otsego County would play any role in the suit, either as a “friend of the court” or more fully.
