SUNY Contempt Hearing on Hold; Negotiations Were Close...

LICH: MK Metz, McBrooklyn
The LICH - SUNY - de Blasio - Fortis rumor machine switched into overdrive in Brooklyn on Tuesday as state Supreme Court Justice Johnny Lee Baynes, who must be sorry he ever heard of SUNY or LICH, agreed to a 2-day adjournment of SUNY's contempt hearing because the 1199SEIU union said Bill de Blasio was getting involved.

As reported by the Brooklyn Eagle, it appears the six community groups suing SUNY for trying to illegally close Long Island College Hospital (LICH) are pissed that the hearing didn't roll out today as scheduled. The hearing will continue on Thursday, it is said....

A source told the Eagle that Mayor de Blasio “was not pushing for a full-service hospital” -- something de Blasio spokesman Phil Walzak immediately denied.

LICH attorney Jim Walden told the Eagle, “It appears to me that someone is trying to instill panic that the negotiations are about to fail. In point of fact, they were within a whisper of succeeding . . ."
