Niagara Gazette — Commission lawyers have also argued that even if Arcara ruled that information was available under U.S. law, Canadian law bars the release of it.
Sklarski said he is still hopeful that Arcara will rule on the lawsuit.
“I think, at some point, a resolve needs to be made,” he said.
The commission was created by an act of Congress. Half of the commissioners are appointed by the governor of New York.
When asked by a reporter whether, as a member of the state Assembly, he might seek to introduce legislation or otherwise pressure the governor to make the commission more transparent, Cerretto said he would look into that.
“That’s a good point,” Cerretto said. “I always thought about this as just a legal matter. But I would consider (some legislative action) now.”
