LICH Saga: Close To A Deal?

LICH Agreement "Within a Whisper"
What a roller coaster this has been.  Could we be close to an acceptable settlement?
As we noted earlier, the contempt hearing concerning SUNY's attempts to close Long Island College Hospital, which has been postponed several times in order to allow the parties time to reach a settlement, was not held this morning, as previously scheduled. The Eagle quotes attorney Jim Walden, who represents the community groups opposing the closure of LICH, as saying the parties are "within a whisper" of an agreement. Walden has been adamant in his contention that LICH must remain a full service hospital, in accordance with his clients' demands.
I hope so.
