Save LICH Attorney Jim Walden Hired by Cobble Hill Association

Oops, we seem to have used the wrong photo here.
Jim Walden, the white-shoe attorney who worked tirelessly (pro bono) but failed to save Long Island College Hospital (LICH), has been hired by the Cobble Hill Association (CHA) to advise the community on its legal options as a developer prepares to knock LICH down.

Walden represented six Brooklyn community groups, including the CHA, in the heartbreaking two-year legal battle to prevent the state from closing LICH.

CHA is hosting a public meeting on the redevelopment of the LICH site on Thursday August 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Brooklyn Montessori School at 185 Court Street, at Bergen Street, in Cobble Hill. The meeting will include a brief presentation of the options put forth by Fortis, followed by opportunities for community feedback and discussion.

More on this at the Brooklyn Eagle and Capital NY.
