Vol. I No. 07 11/1/2020
Judge Sides with the Stockbridge Bowl Association
In the matter of Stockbridge Bowl Association, Inc. v. Town of Stockbridge Conservation Commission, et al. — Berkshire Superior Court Docket No. 1976CV00032 there was a hearing October 29, 2020 11 a.m. via Zoom.
According to Rebekah Lacey, attorney for the town, "Judge Agostini made clear that he is very skeptical of the Commission's action and will likely find that at least some of the conditions of the bylaw remand permit are in contempt of his December 2019 order. He implied that he would take a narrow view of what conditions, if any, are consistent with his order. He also expressed a willingness to impose penalties if he does find the Commission to be in contempt. (The SBA has requested penalties of $1,000 per day.) Judge Agostini stated that he would issue a decision in about two weeks and that he encouraged the parties to reach a settlement before then."
The public could not participate in the hearings but was able to listen into the audio portion of the proceedings.
