Abbe D. Lowell was quoted in a June 17 article in Newsday regarding Suffolk County's spending of $1.4 million in their latest legal battle against real estate investor Robert Toussie in order to create a system to recapture old e-mails and archive the county's electronic messages. Mr. Lowell is defending Mr. Toussie's right to buy property after he claimed that his civil rights were violated. "What the county is spending here is unconscionable," said Mr. Lowell. "All my client wants to do is write a check to the county. Instead of spending millions, they could be bringing in millions."
