With a town board seat and a judgeship still on the line, the ongoing legal battle over Brookhaven’s ballot count has drawn a cast of well-known local lawyers.
Representing Republicans in State Supreme Court are former Nassau County Attorney John Ciampoli and GOP counsel Steven Losquadro, brother of Brookhaven Highway Superintendent Daniel Losquadro.
The Democratic side includes Brookhaven Councilman Steve Fiore-Rosenfeld and James Matthews, the attorney for Northport Village and the Huntington Town board of zoning appeals.
Justice Carol MacKenzie heard arguments last week. The sides are due back in court on Tuesday.
