Judge Extends Temporary Restraining Order

Statement From County Executive Ed Day


“A New York Supreme Court Judge Thursday extended and reaffirmed the Temporary Restraining Order against the City of New York’s shelter program. This extension continues to prohibit the City from transforming hotels and motels in the County of Rockland into shelters.

Additionally, the Judge strictly ordered that the Armoni Inn & Suites can only operate as a hotel for normal business, as it had in the past, and cannot operate as a shelter as they were intending.

Violation of that order could subject Armoni Inn & Suites and the City of New York to contempt of court.”
