New Milford secures another victory in legal battle over cleanup of Century Brass property

NEW MILFORD — The town has realized one more victory in its yrs-extended authorized struggle with Standard Demolition Services more than the remediation of the previous Century Brass assets.

On April 22, the Appellate Court docket not only rejected the demolition company’s charm of a December 2019 trial court docket determination, but dominated in favor of a cross-attraction filed by the city of New Milford that could guide the city to receive further damages in the circumstance.

“We had been content to have the trial court docket aspect with us, and to then have the Appellate Court reject the other side’s charm and grant our cross-attractiveness — it’s a quite gratifying and happy instant for the town,” explained Cramer & Anderson attorney John Tower, who has led the town’s litigation crew all over the case.

New Milford Mayor Pete Bass claimed he, as well, is delighted with the end result.
