McCarter obtained a favorable ruling from a Connecticut trial court on the Complex Litigation Docket for the new owners of the Cobbs Mill Inn in Weston, CT, granting their post-trial motion to remove any stays on executing a judgment they previously obtained from the court after a three-day bench trial granting them immediate possession of the property, which they had obtained through a sale secured with the executor of the former owner’s estate and affirmed by a probate court, and evicting the current occupants, the former owner’s widow and her business partner, who had made a number of efforts to overturn the sale and block access to the property. The court also awarded costs to the new owners, the Siguenzas, who plan to restore the historic property and maintain it as a restaurant as well as an event space. The ruling came after the court found that not only were appeals by the defendants filed solely to delay enforcement of the ruling but also that site had fallen into such disrepair while the defendants had possessed the property that lifting the stay was needed to prevent permanent damage.
The McCarter team representing the Siguenzas included partners Joe Cherico and Adam Swanson and associate Trevor Larrubia.
