Truck Beach Lawyer Files $25M Libel Suit Against Ex-Judge Baisley 

A Southampton-based attorney plans to sue a former Suffolk County judge in the Truck Beach case who allegedly broke the law when the ex-judge publicly issued an order referring the lawyer to the grievance committee.

Dan Rodgers, a former prosecutor who represents commercial fishermen fighting oceanfront Amagansett homeowners to restore the right to drive on a stretch of Napeague beach, filed a notice of claim on November 11 against the former judge, Paul Baisley, who issued the referral on the day he retired on August 31.
