In its suit against the city of Saratoga Springs, Mouzon House argued that the city’s decision to approve a lease with the City Center for land to build a parking structure was flawed in that they maintain that the vote required a super majority along with the approval of the mayor which it did not get. The city sought to have the suit dismissed on the basis that the city’s charter superseded state municipal law and that the lease was therefore properly adopted. As best I understand it, the decision by Judge Chauvin simply allows the case to continue although by rejecting the city’s claim it would appear that Judge Chauvin might be inclined to support this part of the Mouzon House’s suit. It is also my unconfirmed understanding that the city will now appeal this ruling. I believe that the appeal goes to the New York State Court of Appeals which is the highest court in New York.
