Seder & Chandler, LLP Prevails In Preventing Dismissal Of Civil Rights Claim Against Municipality

James Vevone recently prevailed on behalf of firm’s client, a property owning trust, in preventing dismissal of client’s claims against municipality under the Massachusetts Civil Rights Act in the Worcester Superior Court. The municipality moved to dismiss plaintiff’s claims on the grounds that the municipality is not a "person" for purposes of the Act. The Court, ruling in favor of the firm’s client, issued a decision that plaintiff properly stated a claim for relief under the Act. Seder & Chandler, LLP handles all types of commercial litigation, including real estate and zoning disputes.
