Georgica Fence Court Case Was Moved Up

Nov 29, 2011 3:53 PM

Mollie Zweig and Robert Sullivan pleaded not guilty to eight summonses from East Hampton Village Code Enforcement on November 7 in East Hampton Town Justice Court, according to Brian Lester, the village’s special prosecutor.

The court date had originally been set for November 28, but the arraignment was moved up at the request of the defendants, Mr. Lester said on Tuesday.

The summonses were issued earlier this fall after Mr. Sullivan put a fence up in front of Ms. Zweig’s house at Georgica Beach following damage to a dune during Hurricane Irene. East Hampton Village maintains that the fence violates its regulation of barriers on beaches and on the development and disturbance of beaches.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation also sent a notice of violation to Ms. Zweig for building an unapproved structure near tidal wetlands in September. That issue, too, remains to be resolved, Bill Fonda, a DEC spokesman, said on Tuesday.

According to Mr. Lester, the next date court calendar date for the village summonses is January 23, 2012, with a December 30 deadline for motions to be filed.
