Representative Matters: Firm Obtains Judgment for Municipality in Sophisticated Fraud Case; Kenneth R. Slater Jr. and Amanda Brosy recently obtained a positive result for their client, the Town of Burlington, by securing a favorable decision regarding the liability of GWT Associates, LLC and one of its individual members after a lengthy trial. GWT Associates, LLC was a developer that was in the process of completing a multi-phase subdivision located in Burlington. The Town required the company to post $165, 000 in bond funds for the Town's benefit to construct public improvements in the event that GWT failed to complete them. When the improvements were never completed and the Town went to the bank to collect the funds, it discovered that the bond funds had been depleted. Slater and Brosy later uncovered a sophisticated scheme developed by the individual members of the company to create a passbook using company funds for the purpose of leading the Town to believe that the bond funds were on deposit. In reality, the passbook had been pledged as collateral for a bank loan and the loan proceeds were then spent down by the developer.; After a multi-day trial, the court ruled that the Town was successful in proving fraud, negligent misrepresentation, violation of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA), civil conspiracy, conversion, statutory theft, and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing against the individual defendant and the company and also found the company in breach of contract.; Favorable Results Obtained in Zoning Matters; James J. Perito and Amanda Brosy recently obtained positive results for their client, Spinnaker Residential LLC, securing three successful zoning decisions.; The owner of a competing property brought administrative appeals against our client, who plans to construct an upscale mixed-use development in downtown New Haven near Wooster Square, in regards to a zone change, zone map amendment, and two site plan approvals. The New Haven City Plan Commission and Board of Alders had previously approved the changes, and the competing property owner asserted that the decision was not in accordance with the City's Comprehensive Plan of Development and that the amendments constituted spot zoning.; In May of this year, the court upheld the Commission and Boards' decisions and dismissed the appeals.; The competing property owner subsequently filed a Petition for Certification to the Appellate Court seeking review of the trial court's dismissal of its appeal of the City's approval of the zone change and zone map change. On September 14, 2016, the Appellate Court denied the Petition.
