At a packed Fall Meeting of the Cobble Hill Association (CHA) Monday night, the question was "What the Heck Is Going On at LICH?"

It turns out a lot, and in spite of SUNY Downstate's sleazy moves, much is good. Leaders of CHA, attorneys for LICH's many supporters, and elected representatives updated the community on the  legal actions in the works to save LICH. Attendees also heard about Monday’s decision by SUNY to abort their plans to lay off 500 LICH employees.

CHA's Jeff Strabone pleased the crowd when he said, “The Cobble Hill Association is very interested in pursuing criminal proceedings.”

Attorneys Jim Walden and Adam Cohen of the law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; Dr. Toomas Sorra and Dr. John Romanelli of the Concerned Physicians of LICH; and the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) were awarded “Cobble Hill Heroes”plaques.
