FAIRHAVEN – Arguments in a Windwise lawsuit challenging approvals for the town’s wind turbines ended after six days Tuesday in Taunton Superior Court.
Town Counsel Thomas Crotty said Wednesday the lawsuit challenged the permits granted by Building Inspector Wayne Fostin and the Zoning Board of Appeals.
The lawsuit dates back to a petition signed by 150 people in December 2011 asking Mr. Fostin to revoke the permit he’d granted.
Mr. Crotty said the case was heard by Judge Angel Kelly Brown. “My guess is she’s going to make a quick decision,” he said.
Attorney Ann DeNardis, who represented the plaintiffs, did not return a call from The Advocate in time for this week’s deadline.
Executive Secretary Jeffrey Osuch said Monday, “We’re going to spend a small fortune. I don’t think the legal budget is going to be adequate.”
On Tuesday, Mr. Osuch said this was just one of several court challenges Windwise has initiated. He said judges have ruled in the town’s favor so far.
