Weil was featured in an article published by The Am Law Daily for its significant victory for the East End Eruv Association, and religious freedom in general, in a dispute related to the establishment of an eruv -- a symbolic enclosure significant to people of Jewish faith. The article notes that the five-year long legal battle included three municipalities in the Hamptons section of New York, including Quogue, Southampton and Westhampton Beach. Both Quogue and Southampton had previously settled with the East End Eruv Association and, on Thursday, June 2, Westhampton Beach agreed to settle, marking the end of the dispute.
