From Today's News Update in the New York Law Journal, Wednesday, February 16, 2000:
The U.S. Attorney's Office will intervene in a Fair Housing Act lawsuit against Nassau County over its property tax assessment system, pending a determination of additional discovery time requested. The federal government will join six Nassau County homeowners, the New York Civil Liberties Union and the State Attorney General's Office, which filed papers to intervene in the lawsuit last week. Plaintiffs claim the County's assessment system discriminates against minorities by using a formula based on construction costs in 1938 and land values in 1964. Prior to the federal government's request to intervene, the trial was slated for March 6 before Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Dana Winslow.
