Datres Strike Back

Newsday


Armed with Town records which evidence that Town officials had no basis to believe that they were involved in the dumping of materials in Roberto Clemente Park, and that despite the same, the Town widely published false claims that the Town had conducted an investigation and had thereby determined that they were a responsible party for such dumping, Thomas and Clara Datre and their company have filed a multimillion dollar federal lawsuit against the Town of Islip, and a number of politically-connected Town officials.

In seeking thirty million dollars in damages, the Datres have sued Islip Deputy Town Attorney Michael P. Walsh, Islip Councilman Anthony Senft Jr. and Islip Conservative Leader Michael Torres, among others.

Their attorney, Andrew J. Campanelli filed the lawsuit in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York. The case remains pending.
