Here are all the pieces of the Town of Dryden's reply to the Anschutz lawsuit, file number 2011-0902 at the Tompkins County Courthouse.
There's a lot here, but the key pieces are the Verified Answer, a paragraph-by-paragraph reply to the suit (which you'll need the complaint to make sense of), and the Memorandum of Law, a broader look at the case.

the Respondents-Defendants will move this Court at the Tompkins County Courthouse, Ithaca, New York, on the 4th day of November, 2011 at 9:30 a.m., or as soon thereafter as counsel may be heard, for judgment dismissing that part of the Verified Petition which seeks relief pursuant to CPLR Article 78 and for summary judgment pursuant to CPLR 3212 on the grounds there are no material issues of fact and that the causes of action in the Verified Petition and Complaint have no merit, and further relief as to the Court may deem just and proper.
