Group files lawsuit to stop church demolition

Posted: Updated:

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.
