Henrietta, N.Y. (WHAM) - Jack Moore, the former Henrietta town supervisor, has been denied a dismissal of a harassment case against him.

Moore is accused of repeatedly driving by a former town worker's home and honking his horn.

The worker, Scott Mangino, claims he was harassed into retirement and that harassment continued outside his home. Vincent Merante, Moore's defense attorney, denies that harassment took place. Instead, he claims Moore owns property across the street and has hit several deer. The honking is reportedly aimed at scaring away wildlife.

Merante asked the judge to dismiss the case Wednesday. The judge denied that request.

Merante said he will be looking to work out a deal with the Monroe County District Attorney's Office.

Moore lost his re-election bid last November to Democrat Stephen Schultz. He is scheduled to return to court on February 12.
