Here is an excerpt of the most widely read story of 2013:
Concerned citizens of the Town of Huntington, Jennifer LaVertu and John LaVertu, filed a lawsuit in Federal Court in Central Islip today, August 2, 2013, for violations of their First Amendment Right to Speech secured under the United States Constitution. The lawsuit is based primarily upon the Town of Huntington’s retaliation against them for their outspoken efforts to shed light on the Town’s flawed housing and land development policies which are detrimental to the community. The Town systematically targeted Mr. and Mrs. LaVertu with baseless summonses on their home, public humiliation, and efforts to sabotage Mr. LaVertu’s longtime plumbing business.
