Thomas B. Wassel, a Partner in the Firm's Municipal and Land Use practice areas, was interviewed by CBS News discussing "Lindenhurst Residents At Odds With Village Officials Over Property They Thought They Owned."

Multiple home owners from Lindenhurst have been told that the land that they thought was theirs actually belongs to the town, and they will have to pay extra for that land now. “The village is not allowed to just give them the property because that would be an unconstitutional gift of public property," Wassel said. "The property is owned by all of the taxpayers."
