Court Case Settled

Leroy Douglas, the Douglas Corporation of Silver Lake, and the Adirondack Council, Inc., all of whom were parties in the matter of Leroy M. Douglas and the Douglas Corporation of Silver Lake v. New York State Adirondack Park Agency, et al., Civil Case No. 10-cv-299, are pleased to announce that the few remaining claims in that case have been settled by mutual agreement, and the parties have stipulated to their dismissal with prejudice. The Adirondack Council’s insurance carrier has agreed to reimburse a portion of Mr. Douglas’ legal expenses in lieu of incurring further defense costs. Mr. Douglas and the Douglas Corporation of Silver Lake had previously dismissed all claims against the Adirondack Council, Inc. employees who had been named as defendants.

The terms of the settlement reflect that the Adirondack Council, Inc. admits no wrongdoing or liability, and Mr. Douglas and the Douglas Corporation of Silver Lake acknowledge that the Adirondack Council did not violate their constitutional rights or tortiously interfere with the Douglas Corporation’s agreement with the Adirondack Park Agency. While the Adirondack Council regrets any misunderstandings or miscommunications which may have occurred, it will continue to pursue its mission and vision of strong environmental protections and sustainable vibrant communities in the Adirondack Park.
