Last month, A. Thomas Levin, a member of Garden City’s Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein P.C. law firm and chair of the firm’s Local Government, Land Use Law and Environmental Compliance and the Professional Responsibility practice groups served as a judge for the final three rounds of the 40th Annual New York State Metropolitan Area Civil Law Moot Court Competition. This was Levin’s 9th year as a judge.
The competition, for high school students across the metropolitan area, was held at Northport High School. It is a joint effort between the New York State Bar Association’s Law, Youth & Citizenship Committee and Project P.A.T.C.H. in which high school students act as attorneys for adverse parties and as witnesses in hypothetical civil case scenarios. The students are presented with the case materials only a few minutes before the trials commence, and must improvise their presentations based on training they have received with respect to trial procedures.
Levin is a former president of the New York State Bar Association and is a life member of that association’s house of delegates. He has also served as a trustee of the New York State Bar Foundation and is a sustaining fellow of that organization.

Stewart Manor residents had beautification on the brain at the village’s most recent board of trustees meeting. Several attendees participated in a friendly airing of grievances to the board about the amount of litter being left in front of some of the shops along Covert Ave and in the parking lots.
Former Village Beautification Committee Chairman Julian Sottovia says that enough is enough, and further steps need to be taken.

Did you know that each of our neighbor hood parks runs a playground program every summer? Children entering 1st through 8th grades who are residents of the Village are invited to come to the park during the summer to find out what activities are taking place.
Each park has its own “flavor” and “favorite” activities. The park directors and their staff run games, sports, tournaments, and arts and crafts activities during the day and into the evening. Trips are also run through the parks.
