Hasidic Jews may sue NY towns they accuse of discrimination, judge rules

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 06/10/2015 - 01:44
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge ordered two New York municipalities in the Catskills foothills to face a lawsuit accusing them of discriminating against Hasidic Jews by trying to stop them from moving in. U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest said Bloomingburg, a village in Sullivan County with about 400 residents, must face claims by the developer of a 396-unit townhouse complex that it violated federal civil rights and fair housing laws by trying to stop the project, which has been marketed in English- and Yiddish-language newspapers. The Manhattan judge also said Mamakating, a town of 12,000 of which Bloomingburg is a part, must face claims it improperly blocked the conversion of a property into a mikvah, a bath used by Hasidic Jews for ritual immersion and purification.

(AP Photo/Scott Smith)FIREBAUGH, Calif.

N.Y. court says dog owners cannot be sued over bicycle collisions

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 06/10/2015 - 01:06
A cyclist who collided with a dog in New York's Central Park cannot sue its owners, the state's top court ruled on Tuesday, saying riders should be careful not to cross paths with animals that are a constant public presence. In two similar lawsuits, bicyclists said a 2013 decision by the Court of Appeals that allowed a woman to sue the owner of a cow she crashed into with her van should apply to domestic pets. "In public parks, one regularly encounters dog owners with their unrestrained canine companions," Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam wrote, "whereas one ... certainly never expects to see someone taking his or her cow for a walk in the neighborhood." The cases involved Wolfgang Doerr, who was injured in 2009 after crashing into a 45-pound shepherd mix on Central Park's bicycle loop road, and Cheryl Dobinski, who fell from her bike in 2012 when she tried to avoid two German shepherds that ran onto the road near their rural home south of Buffalo.
