Disgruntled couple sues Westhampton – again

They say persistence pays off. Andrew and Lynne Edelman are doubling down on litigation against Westhampton officials after the village and its zoning board of appeals denied their multiple requests to separate two Stacy Drive lots into three. The saga began in the 1990s, when the zoning board allowed the couple to expand their house on 30 Stacy Drive, under the condition that it be grouped into the same parcel as 26 Stacy Drive, an undeveloped lot. The third property is 28 Stacy Drive, on which a second house sits. Last year, after the structure at 30 Stacy Drive was damaged in a fire, the Edelmans asked the village to change their 1990s agreement. But when the village denied it, they filed suit, claiming they would lose $900,000 if the three lots cannot be separated. Meanwhile, they turned to the zoning board with the same request. The board voted against them as well, however, prompting a second lawsuit filed last month. [27East] — Cathaleen Chen
