Cloverleaf Realty of N.Y., Inc. v. Town of Wawayanda, No. 07-3405

District court order dismissing a procedural due process claim as precluded by an earlier dismissal of a similar claim by a New York state court for lack of timeliness is vacated where the dismissal of a claim solely for lack of timeliness in a New York state court does not preclude the same claim from being brought in another jurisdiction with a longer statute of limitations, including a federal court exercising its federal question jurisdiction.
