County awarded legal fees from Stone Lake case


Five defendants have been ordered to pay a total of $14,977 in legal fees stemming from litigation over former county property at Stone Lake.

Steuben County Superior Court Judge William C. Fee made the ruling last week, finding against the five defendants – Gary Reis, James Riley, Thomas Reis, Gregory Siska and Dale Galassie.

The five had filed a lawsuit against the county originally in an attempt to stop the sale of property in 2008, appealing the county’s claim to title.

The county won its claim to title on the disputed property and filed to recover its legal fees.
