A few people I regularly talk to ask what happened to Zuppa. I saw him in Central Islip today in District Court and he has confirmed to me that he is doing well. His goatee has gone a little gray but he looks, talks and acts the same way.
Matter of Matter of Golia v Velez, 2012 NY Slip Op 05337 (1st Dept. 2012)
Nothing like Supreme Court Justices from the Appellate Division having to judge the actions of a recently retired Supreme Court Justice. The petitioner here was the only Justice at the Appellate Term who realized half way through his tenure (about 2006) that his legal rulings, in effect, encouraged a systematic fraud upon the courts in this State.
In any event, he should not have turned a garage into habitable space. Not smart.
Excel Imaging, P.C. v All Car Rent A Car, Inc., 2012 NY Slip Op 50104(U)(App. Term 1st Dept. 2012)
“The record raises triable issues as to whether the notices for examinations under oath were properly mailed by defendant and received by plaintiff (see Stephen Fogel Psychological, P.C. v Progressive Cas. Ins. Co., 35 AD3d 720, 721 ; cf. Eagle Surgical Supply, Inc. v Progressive Cas. Ins. Co., 21 Misc 3d 49, 51 ).”
I think I know why there was a CF there. Mr. Zuppa, the c.f. guru, can perhaps share his thoughts.
Poor Zuppa. He is on this quest to make the DOI enforce New York State law, and the First Department seems to think he is off his rocker. The man is on a mission, similar to “Sun”, and neither can seem to make it out of the starting gate. Perhaps a DJ action seeking a permanent injunction against the NCIB would have been the better way to get this before the Court? I am not suggesting that there is any merit, or a lack of merit to Zuppa’s quest. I am just watching this from the outside looking in and shaking my head.
By the way – note the new category this post is under.
