Re: Roemer v. Prusinski, et al Index No. 590-15
Your Honor:
I enclose a notice of discontinuance with respect to the above matter, being copied
to all respondents today. It will therefore not be necessary for anyone in this matter to
appear on the return date of March 30. We thank the Court for its time in the matter.
On February 27, 2015, the Board of Elections issued a Notice of Determination to
purge the challenged registration of 205 persons claiming Bloomingburg residency.
Thereafter, however, unknown at the time by myself, petitioner Roemer, the petitioners
or their counsel in Francis v. Prusinski, or those who had initiated the challenge, the
County Board of Elections, notwithstanding its own decision, agreed to a request by the
attorney for the Lamm faction, not to implement the mechanics of purging the
registration of dozens of Mr. Lamms clients. Consequently, dozens of ballots were cast
in the March 18, 2015 Village election by persons whom the Board had already ruled
ineligible. Those ballots were merged inseparably with the legitimate votes cast.
Petitioner Roemer is behind on the count by nine votes. The ballots of ineligible
persons substantially exceed that margin, and therefore plainly affected the outcome. If
the Board had simply carried out the mechanical implementation of its February 27
determination, Ms. Roemer would today be the clear winner of this election.
Under these circumstances, however, appellate authority dictates that petitioners
remedy as to this election now rests with the attorney general.

Respectfully submitted,

Alan M. Goldston
