NYCLU brings suit against Mirch

The New York Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against the city of Troy and Public Works Commissioner Bob Mirch for shuttering an art center in the midst of a controversial exhibit over a year ago.

The suit alleges that the closing of the Sanctuary for Independent Media on March 11, 2008 for code violations a day after the opening of “Virtual Jihadi,” a game in which a suicide bomber tries to kill then-President George W. Bush, violated the Sanctuary’s Constitution-protected rights to free speech, due process and equal protection.

For more on this story, keep checking The Record's Web site as well as Wednesday's edition of the paper.

Jeff Buell the director of ecomonic development? Harry, are you on drugs? No experience or education in economic development...politics! What a joke - this administration!! Only 30 months to go -you pack of idiots! Jeff's only claim to fame is that he worked at the Record and disclosed information to Tutumjian prior to his first election in trade for a higher paying job at the City!!

While I normally don't agree with the NYCLU, it is about time that someone took on this bully
