The court case revolves around the citing of Adirondack Explorer Phil Brown for paddling his watercraft through a really nice waterway. Here’s what Brown wrote recently: “The suit was filed after I paddled through private property owned by the Friends of Thayer Lake and the Brandreth Park Association in 2009. I wrote about the trip for the Adirondack Explorer newsmagazine.
“Since I am the defendant, I don’t want to write about the case. However, the Explorer wants to make public the memoranda of law that were filed in advance of Friday’s arguments. The documents were prepared by the New York State Attorney General’s Office; John Caffry, who is my attorney; and Dennis Phillips, who represents the plaintiffs. The attorney general is arguing that the waterway in question is open to the public.” You can read more reporting on this right here right now.
