WOODBURY - ? Verizon is going to court against its striking workers as the walkout goes into its fifth day. The telephone giant has filed an injunction against the unions on strike in three states, including New York. Verizon says some strikers have gone too far, harassing workers and even sabotaging the company. Some 45,000 employees from New England to Virginia went on strike Sunday after their contract expired. Yesterday, employees picketed in front of Vice President Joe Biden's Southampton vacation house.
