Lawyers for MarshAcres LLC and Mallard Dairy LLC, both controlled by Charlie Bares of Ellicottville NY, filed a petition in state appellate court to stop the eminent domain proceedings initiated by the county IDA. Only a limited portion of the petition has been released, as shown below. The Wellsville Sun is following the story closely but due to litigation, confirmed information is limited.
The gossip-mill is turning quickly and those opposed to the use of eminent domain have staged protests and created a real political quagmire for those seeking re-election to the Allegany County Legislature. Expect developments in this story within the week, if not within the day.
