Wednesday night Long Island College Hospital (LICH) supporters -- nurses, community groups, doctors and health care workers-- declared their solidarity and got ready for another day in court in Brooklyn for the second day of the contempt case against SUNY.
SUNY and DOH are charged with dozens of violations of orders requiring them to keep LICH open, issued by state Supreme Court Justice Johnny Lee Baynes.
Justice Baynes has asked to see all parties Thursday morning.
It's never possible to predict what will happen next in this most convoluted of court proceedings.
Possible outcomes range from a week-long hearing featuring damning testimony against SUNY and DOH officials . . . to a compromise that will allow their rigged RFP (Request for Proposals) to be rebid, this time with community involvement and transparency.
Will SUNY officials be punished for their crimes?
@SUNY @NYGovCuomo Tonight more than 90% of available patient beds at #SaveLICH are full! We have never been more #United & we R #Open4Care
