Great News - Article 97 wins in Smith v. City of Westfield Case!

 

Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) released its decision in the Smith v. City of Westfield.  The court found that the park land in question is indeed protected under Article 97.   Read the decision http://www.mass.gov/courts/docs/sjc/reporter-of-decisions/new-opinions/12243.pdf

MACC’s amicus brief urged the SJC to overturn the Appeals Court decision and this ruling supports MACC’s brief.
