BREAKING - NHL Superstar Involved in Landfill Lawsuit?

Published August 25, 2023 at 1:01

During the NHL off-season, players find time to focus on training and adapt to new surroundings in case of trades or signings. However, Bo Horvat's transition to Nassau County took an unexpected turn as he and his wife find themselves entangled in a local lawsuit.

Lawsuit Involving Horvat Unfolds

A lawsuit, initiated by Eastern LLC, property owner near Leeds Pond, has thrown Horvat into the legal spotlight. The lawsuit seeks to reverse a recent decision involving the Village of Plandome Manor, also named as a defendant. This decision, sanctioned by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), permits Horvat and his wife to use an area adjacent to the pond for a fill, under the belief that it won't negatively impact the pond's ecosystem.

Mixed Reactions Emerge

Opponents of the decision argue that the planned fill could harm the pond's ecology. The fill requirement, amounting to 350 cubic yards, exceeds the 50 cubic yards limit allowed without a permit from the Village. Concerns are raised about ecological consequences.

Connection to Horvat

Bowie Horvat, the name listed on court documents, is tied to this case. The forward recently listed his Vancouver home after being traded from the Canucks to the Islanders. While the purpose of the fill isn't clearly stated, the Horvats were granted permission to proceed after a public hearing with legal representation.

"the project received full approval from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and stated that no work being done on the project affects the pond."
