PRESS ADVISORY BY THE TOWN OF NEWINGTON
RE: MICHAEL CAMILLO, ET AL v. TOWN OF NEWINGTON, ET AL Hartford Superior Court, No. HHD-CV-19-6112462-S
Date: Monday, July 8, 2019
Today, Attorneys for the Town of Newington filed a Motion to Dismiss a lawsuit filed in the Hartford Superior Court, Michael Camillo, et al v. Town of Newington, et al.
Mayor Roy Zartarian stated, "The Town's attorney has rapidly responded to the lawsuit by moving for its dismissal and, has filed a motion requesting the Superior Court to quickly move the matter to Connecticut's Appellate or Supreme Court to expedite a final ruling on the issues."
The Town's motion and memorandum of law argue that the lawsuit's claims must be dismissed because plaintiffs lack standing to challenge the Town Council's adoption of the Town Budget in April 2019.
In addition, plaintiffs' claims are moot because the results of another referendum would not negate the budget passed by the Council, nor negate the Town's contractual obligations to the Town Hall Project, providing them no practical relief,
The Town and its attorneys seek a prompt decision from the Court after plaintiffs file their response to the Town's Motion to Dismiss and related documents.
