Maine Bar Journal features article

Libby O’Brien Kingsley & Champion, LLC is proud to announce the publication of an article by Keith Richard in the Winter Edition of the Maine Bar Journal (Volume 36, No. 1, 2021).  Keith’s article presents a detailed review and analysis of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court’s decision in Tomasino v. Town of Casco, 2020 ME 96, in which the Court held that a deeded right-of-way over an abutter’s property was insufficient “right, title, or interest” to establish administrative standing to obtain a permit to remove three trees along the right-of-way.  In so ruling, the Court in Tomasino announced a new standing rule that is likely to burden property rights, complicate municipal practice, and result in more contentious, protracted litigation.  To read the full article, please click this link to the Maine Bar Journal.
