Yes, LICH Is Back In Brooklyn Court Tuesday

Long Island College Hospital was once a training ground for doctors. Now, it's where lawyers cut their teeth on the law.

Whole schools of lawyers will return to Brooklyn court as LICH supporters appear before state Supreme Court Justice Johnny Lee Baynes with hope that he will somehow right this train wreck.

The issue tomorrow, for those who missed a day or so, is that crazy ranking of bids that didn't adhere to the RFP.

According to the Brooklyn Eagle:

"Attorney Jim Walden, of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, told the Brooklyn Eagle that the LICH community filed a motion at state Supreme Court in Brooklyn on Friday to throw out the rankings turned in by six of the hospital bid evaluators. Supporters say these evaluators did not follow instructions to award more points to full-service hospital proposals, the key feature of a landmark legal settlement."

No doubt this will set off a cascade of lawsuits -- Fortis has to countersue, and maybe Peebles as well.

A press conference/ rally will tke place aat the courthouse in Boro Hall Plaza at 9 a.m.
