Haggerty
calls suit
frivolous
The exchange grows out of a
case involving purchase of a
cigar shop.

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER
tmorgan@timesleader.com
SCRANTON – Judicial candi-
date James Haggerty said he in-
tends to seek sanctions against a
Mountain Top attorney whom he
alleges has filed a frivolous federal
lawsuit against Haggerty and two
of his clients.
Haggerty said the suit, filed by
attorney Richard deY Manning on
behalf of his wife, Melanie, lacks
any factual basis to include him as
a defendant. The suit also fails to
state a valid cause of action that
would allow it to proceed in federal
court against his clients, Jason Hol-
ly and Menechem Gansburg, he
said.
Haggerty, who is among 16 can-
didates seeking the Democratic
and Republican nominations for
six judgeships in the May primar-
ies, said he

The federal lawsuit, filed in Feb-
ruary, centers on a dispute that de-
veloped between Melanie Man-
ning and Holly and Gansburg re-
garding their purchase of the El
Humidor cigar shop in Wilkes-
Barre Township from her.
Melanie Manning sued Holly
and Gansburg in Luzerne County
Court seeking to recover $18,500
she claims they still owed for the
sale. Holly and Gansburg maintain
they rightfully withheld the pay-
ment because Manning failed to
pay certain obligations that were
part of the sales agreement, ac-
cording to court documents.
Those obligations included a
lien that the IRS had placed on the
business for failure to pay taxes,
which Manning says has since
been paid. How Gansburg and Hol-

basis of the federal lawsuit.

Pro-Life Town Hall Meeting


Coming to Scranton
The Northeast region of Pennsylvanians For
Human Life will host a Pro-Life Town Hall Meeting
scheduled for April 14 from 7 to 9 PM at St. Lucy’s
Church Auditorium, 949 Scranton St. in West
Scranton.

The event is part of a state-wide educational forum


sponsored by the PA Pro-Life Federation. Michael
Ciccocioppo, Executive Director of the state-wide
organization will lead the town hall event with
Education Director Maria Vitale. The event will
provide an opportunity to become informed of the
developments in pro-life legislation, the fight against
abortion funding in health care reform, restoring
protection for preborn children, and fighting the
new battle against medical rationing for seniors. Mr.
Ciccocioppo said, “This new adventure is designed
to ensure that Pennsylvania pro-lifers have the tools
needed to rebuild a culture of life in their
communities.” The first hour will include the pre-
sentation of information and the second hour will
provide the opportunity for questions and answers.
The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Refreshments will be served.

Betty Caffrey, president of the Wyoming


Valley Chapter of Pennsylvanians for Human Life,
is encouraging all who are interested in becoming
informed about key pro-life issues to attend. “We are
living in crucial times”, she said, “where on one hand
the government tries to assure us there will be no
funding of abortion and no rationing of health care to
our elderly, and on the other hand
Implementing Committees in charge are already
plotting ways to make it happen.” For further
information, contact the Pro-Life Center at 826-1819.
