Former Supervisor Peter Same??s legal challenge to petitions seeking a referendum on the town taking
money from its capital reserve fund to renovate and reuse its town hall was dismissed Tuesday.
Acting State Supreme Court Justice Patrick Falvey of Yates County dismissed the challenge in a
bench ruling after hearing arguments at the Yates County Courthouse in Penn Yan.
Falvey??s ruling dismissed the challenge on two legal technicalities, without getting into the merits of
whether the petitions had a sufficient number of valid signatures.
Specifically, Falvey agreed with attorney Steven Getman of Ovid, who represented petition signers.
