SUNY Special Trustees Meeting July 16, After LICH Contempt Hearing

Carl McCall, SUNY Chair
A special meeting of the SUNY Board of Trustees will be held on Tuesday, July 16, at State University Plaza in Albany, New York at 2:00 p.m.

According to the SUNY website, "It is anticipated that the Chairman of the Board may call for a motion to convene an Executive Session under provisions of Section 105 of Article 7 of the Public Officers Law."

This means the board will talk about the juicy stuff in private.

The topic of the special meeting has not been announced.  But Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Baynes had set a hearing for contempt for July 15, the day before the SUNY trustees meeting.

SUNY Downstate has flaunted Judge Baynes' order to keep Long Island College Hospital open and fully staffed. “Individuals will be named and they may well have to come before this Court and show cause why they shouldn’t be held in contempt,” Baynes said.

If this hearing is still in place (it's been reported that SUNY has appealed the order), the trustees will likely be discussing who takes the rap.

Video conferencing of the public portions of the meeting, if any, at:

State University College of Optometry
33 West 42nd Street
New York, New York
