This page will keep you posted about the progress of the Anti-corporate welfare lawsuit that is pending in State Supreme Court, Albany, New York.
The lawsuit seeks a permanent end to all cash grants to private corporations for “economic development.”
Oral argument in the case was held on December 3rd in Albany. The court reserved decision and should issue a ruling within 60 days.
Here is our action plan while we wait:
1. propose constitutional amendments to ban all forms of corporate welfare.
2. seek partners for the cause–The Libertarian Party is the first group to endorse our lawsuit.
3. prepare to lobby the legislature for the return of our money if we win the case.
Case documents are listed below (we are updating the site and all documents will be online shortly).
