This action was commenced by plaintiff Donald Staszko, individually and as trustee of Cohasset Realty Trust, on November 16, 2007, seeking to annul the decision of the defendant Town of Cohasset Planning Board granting a special permit to defendant Abbott Homes Cohasset, LLC (Abbott Homes) for the construction of a single family residential cluster development on a certain parcel of real property located at 230 Sohier Street and the northerly side of Sohier Street, Cohasset.
On February 4, 2008, Abbott Homes filed a Motion for Summary Judgment. Plaintiffs responded with an Opposition to Abbott Homes Motion for Summary Judgment on March 11, 2008 supported by the Affidavit of Jerome B. Carr, Ph.D. Abbott Homes then filed a Reply Brief on March 31, 2008 and plaintiffs filed a Supplemental Affidavit of Jerome B. Carr, Ph.D. on April 11, 2008.
