LICH Shutdown on Hold AGAIN; Brooklyn Judge Issues Temporary Restraining Order

Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Johnny Lee Baynes issued a temporary restraining order on Monday stopping the NYS Department of Health from shutting down Long Island College Hospital (LICH) -- until at least May 2, the Brooklyn Eagle reports.

Last month, Judge Johnny Lee Haynes said the SUNY Board had violated state Open Meetings law during its first vote to close LICH. The board re-voted to close it a few days later.

Meanwhile Cobble Hill residents have paid for a TV commercial airing later this week which depicts a dying patient and frantic ambulance workers dealing with the aftermath of the closure LICH, the NY Daily News reports.
