Court Denies Motion to Transfer Van Liew's Latest 9 North Road Suit to Land Court
A date for the next hearing has not been set.
A Middlesex Superior Court judge has ruled against moving Roland Van Liew's latest 9 North Road lawsuit against the town to land court, according to town officials.
The town has filed a motion to dismiss the matter.
The suit was filed on April 30 and names the current Board of Selectmen, as well as the 2009 and 2010 Board of Selectmen.
Town Manager Paul Cohen said the lawsuit is basically a re-hashing of the issue, which was already decided about two years ago in land court in favor of the town.
"This may mean that the judge feels comfortable ruling on the case rather than passing it on," said Cohen. "No date has been set on a hearing for the Town’s motion to dismiss the complaint."
