Skoufis cheers dismissal of “vindictive and frivolous” suit

State Sen. James Skoufis issued a statement on Monday applauding the recent dismissal of a federal lawsuit that had been brought against him last year by a Monroe resident who had been blocked from Skoufis’ Facebook page.

“It’s reassuring to know that the courts were able to see through this vindictive and frivolous lawsuit,” Skoufis, D-Cornwall said. “As I continue to work for my constituents and push back against overdevelopment in our region, I won’t let reprehensible bullies like Eli Wagschal stand in the way of our efforts. My constituents deserve someone who will fight for their quality of life and I will always do just that.”

In the lawsuit, Wagschal complained that he was blocked after he criticized anti-Hasidic remarks that other Facebook readers posted in response to an article about a proposed new village in Monroe that Wagschal’s father has helped to organize. Skoufis opposes that effort to form the proposed Village of Seven Springs and has introduced a bill to tighten the standards for incorporating new villages in New York.
