Court decision expected soon in Bay Ridge trash suit
Residents of four Bay Ridge streets who filed a lawsuit against the city over garbage collections will soon find out if a judge agrees with them or if their trashy troubles will continue.
Hon. Katherine Levine, the judge presiding over the case, is expected to issue her ruling within days, according to Lucian Chalfen, a spokesperson for the New York State Unified Court System.
“A decision on this case will be handed down by the end of the week,” Chalfen told this newspaper in an email on Monday.
A group of residents living on four private streets filed suit in 2017 to reverse a decision by the Department of Sanitation to stop picking up their household trash.
