A recent decision handed down from the State of New York Supreme Court, County of Erie, finds in favor of Bouvier Law’s municipal client and plaintiff in the case, the Town of Boston, New York.
Attorney Paula Newcomb shared a summary of the case:
Agreeing with the case-law cited by Bouvier Law, the judge granted the Town of Boston’s cross-motion for summary judgment declaring that the property in question was not a town road, and in fact was private property. The court also agreed with the Town and declared that the Town of Boston had the right to erect barricades at the end of its road for safety reasons, and rejected plaintiff’s request for removal of the barricades.
Bouvier Law has been representing municipalities for over 25 years as general counsel.
