Another victory! The technical committee will be instructed to ignore SUNY's last-minute advice. The scoring will be done over. #SaveLICH

The amazing tale of Long Island College Hospital (LICH) just keeps on going:
Brooklyn Eagle: After attorneys for LICH supporters raised hell on Wednesday about alleged interference by SUNY and the state Department of Health in the voting process, the deadline to evaluate the nine LICH bids was extended to give panelists a chance to reconsider the proposals.
The panelists have been instructed to “disregard any information conveyed to them" by SUNY during an unmonitored conference call.
The new deadline is Monday, March 31 at 5 p.m.
Nothing like a little "interference" by the state into what was supposed to be a clean process.
Thank goodness for the level-headed judgement of state Supreme Court Justice Johnny Lee Baynes. This is a gigantic case that will eventually end up in legal school text books.
