Commander Case Continues
The New York State Court of Appeals, the highest court in the state made a decision in the Commander Oil dredging case on Thursday, Oct. 18. Different people view the decision differently. Harold Shapiro, president of Commander Oil Corporation views it as a win: Oyster Bay Town Deputy Attorney Anthony Sabino sees it as a need to prove that dredging would be an environmental hazard to the bay; Friends of the Bay Executive Director Denise Woodin sees it as a setback for the Town of Oyster Bay and a dismay to Friends of the Bay, that the New York State Court of Appeals has reversed the Appellate Court's injunction prohibiting Commander Oil from dredging in Oyster Bay Harbor.
