State Court of Appeals denies appeal by Save the Pine Bush Inc.

The New York State Court of Appeals denied an appeal by Save the Pine Bush Inc. in a lawsuit against the Clifton Park Planning Board over the Karner blue butterfly habitat along Wood Road in the town.

The decision also requires Save the Pine Bush Inc. to pay $100 to offset the legal costs incurred by the town.

Save the Pine Bush Inc. and 11-other individuals named in the suit appealed an April dismissal of the lawsuit by the New York State Appellate Court.

The group initially challenged a ruling to dismiss the case by Acting State Supreme Court Justice Barry Kramer in November 2006, which said the plaintiffs did not have standing to lodge a lawsuit.
