Group files lawsuit to stop church demolition

WATERVLIET,
N.Y. — The group hoping to save St. Patrick's church in Watervliet are waiting
and watching the courts now.

In a last
ditch effort to keep the church from being torn down, the group 'citizens for St.
Patricks' filed a lawsuit in Albany County Court.

Judge
Kimberly O'Connor is expected to make a final ruling by tomorrow.

The
property has already been rezoned, and if it is torn down a price chopper will
be built in its place.

The Albany
Catholic Diocese says the church was in disrepair and they had no choice but to
take it down.
