A very, very, very nice owner of a Motel in the town of New Paltz in upstate NY is suing the city over a recent ordinance that limits the number of registered sex offenders who can reside at his motel.

The lawsuit, Case #: EF2021‑857 filed in Ulster County Supreme Court, seeks to have the ordinance declared unconstitutional. The owners of the motel have had an arrangement with the Ulster County Department of Social Services for 15 years, but when notifications went out to a local State University of New York Campus recently, the town got up-in-arms and complained.

Among a restriction on the number of registrants who can live at the motel, the town also requires the business owners to obtain a special license (that costs over $1500) if they want to house persons required to register.
