In June 2010, the Furgary Boat Club, calling itself the "North Dock Tin Boat Association, Inc.," filed an adverse possession lawsuit to stop the transfer of the land on which the shacks that comprise the club are situated from the State of New York to the City of Hudson and to establish forever the "clear and vested rights" of the boat club "to use, occupy, and possess" the property. Today the Register-Star reports on the progress of that lawsuit: "City awaits decision on Fugary [sic] Club." In December, the City filed a motion to dismiss and is now awaiting the court's decision.
The City of Hudson is being represented in the lawsuit by Victor Meyers of the Hudson law firm Rapport Meyers. The North Dock Tin Boat Association is represented by Scott C. Paton of the Albany law firm McNamee, Lochner, Titus, & Williams.
