The lawsuit filed by Todd and Lindsay Powers in Geneva over foundry contamination may go to trial next month.
The Finger Lakes Times reports that it could happen as soon as May 10.
That said, attorney Brady O’Malley of the Syracuse-based law firm Smith Sovik Kendrick & Sugnet said state Supreme Court Judge Charles Schiano could move the trial to an earlier date if a spot opens up on his calendar, according to that report by the FLT.
O’Malley is representing Powers in the matter- meanwhile, the city of Geneva has retained attorney Christina Juliano in the matter.
The original suit listed eight issues. However, it’s been reduced to a single matter. The city is accused of being negligent by telling Powers that the property they bought on Wadsworth St. was fit for development.
