Attorney Conroy Succeeds Before the Connecticut Supreme Court

Attorney Michael Conroy, representing a local resident in defense of an appeal filed by an area hospital, obtained a successful result before the Connecticut Supreme Court this week.  In the appeal, the hospital claimed that Attorney Conroy’s client ought to be held in contempt of court for failing to pay certain costs levied against him following litigation with the hospital.  This was the first time that this issue would be addressed by our appeals courts, so the argument took place before Connecticut’s highest court, the Connecticut Supreme Court.  The seven judge panel heard arguments in December, and has now issued its decision finding in favor of Attorney Conroy’s client and against the hospital!

David Yale Exonerates Local Police Officers

Attorney David Yale, himself a former police officer, successfully defended four local police officers in a case of “swatting.”  An unknown person called the police and reported gunfire and people shot inside a house.  When the police arrived, they searched the house to ensure that no one was hurt and in need of assistance, but determined the call was false and was intended to harass the home owner.  The homeowner sued the officers in claiming they had no right to enter his house.  The Federal District Court granted judgement in favor of the officers, reasoning that the information given to the officers was specific enough for them to reasonably believe someone in the home may have been shot or in need of aid and that the officers' actions were limited to what was necessary to determine the call was a hoax.

Last Month of 2016 Yields Many Successful Development and Transactional Results for Hassett & George Clients

Many of these projects included land use and environmental approvals prior to the closings.  Upon obtaining these approvals, the closings went off without a hitch providing our clients with greater opportunity to profit in 2017.
